Material Culture and Public Humanities: Featured Resources
This Research Guide supports the Material Culture and Public Humanities program at Virginia Tech which prepares graduates to interpret material culture and engage communities within informed historical and cultural frameworks, so that they are prepared for a wide range of careers in museums, historical societies, and community and cultural organizations.
The Art & Architecture Library maintains a collection of exhibition catalogs with a focus on leading museum exhibits, diverse artists, and new media art. The catalogs are discoverable through Discovery. Use the subject heading "exhibition catalogs" as shown in the image below to search for this material.
All current Virginia Tech students, faculty, and staff, regardless of your location, may request through ILLiad for materials:
- not owned by Virginia Tech (books, articles from journals and conference proceedings, book chapters, standards, and technical papers)
- owned by Virginia Tech but are unavailable for use (print books)
- owned by Virginia Tech and available in print (scans of articles from journals and conference proceedings, book chapters, standards, and technical papers)
We ship requests via UPS to users outside the immediate Blacksburg area (Montgomery, Giles and Pulaski counties).
Articles, book chapters, and many technical papers are delivered in PDF format to your ILLiad account. Occasionally, due to copyright restrictions, a paper copy of an article or standard is held for your at the Newman User Services Desk or sent o the mailing address listed on your account.
