Although we migated our data into the new system, there may be a few glitches (like duplicate records).Some user features, like placing requests, may not be available yet. Please use the catalog and let us know what you think. (And if it looks familiar, it is very similar to Art & Architecture Source,)
You might think the most important resource of a library is the books. In fact, it's really the librarians. They can make your life much easier.
We're happy to assist. We don't mind questions. . . Really.
In 1954 Millard Sheets was appointed Director of Otis College. Under his leadership, the school's academic program was restructured so that BFA and MFA degrees were offered.
You may be familiar with his mosaic work on Los Angeles bank buildings.
