General Collections


We subscribe to more than 280 serials in print, and our databases provide full-text articles from thousands of other journals, magazines, and newspapers. Additionally we have back issues runs of hundreds of other print journals. Our subscriptions and holdings are focused on art, design, and education, but also support undergraduate study in the liberal arts.

Students, faculty, and staff can borrow from the Godine's circulating collection of more than 90,000 volumes. The collection is focused on art and design, but it's also strong in education, and provides solid resources to support the liberal arts portion of the MassArt curriculum. In the same online catalog where you search for items in the Godine collection, you will also find nearly a million additional items in the other 8 libraries in Fenway Libraries Online (FLO). MassArt ID holders can borrow in person at these libraries (many are within a 10-minute walk) or request that the books be delivered to the Godine within 2 to 3 days.

DVDs, Videos, and Films

The Godine Library has about 3,000 DVDs and videotapes, and 800 16-mm films. These collections reflect the college's curriculum but also include many feature films as well. You can search these collections in the library catalog by title, director, or subject. Use the "advanced search" function and select "MassArt Media Collection."
