Nova Scotia College of Art & Design Library: past, present, and future

  • Ilga Leja (a1)

Abstract

Although the Library of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD) can trace its history to the origins of the College itself, its metamorphosis into a modern library began in 1972 when two professional librarians were hired to establish a library resource to match the expanding programs of the College. John Murchie was hired as Director of the Library and Mary Snyder was hired as the Slide Librarian. Largely through their efforts and those of the library staff, the NSCAD Library has grown to become the premier library collection for the visual arts and design in Atlantic Canada. As a member of the Novanet consortium of university libraries, the NSCAD Library has joined the ranks of Nova Scotia universities in offering a full-scale library service to its immediate community and to practising artists, academics, and the general public in the region.
