The image many people have of a researcher is of someone in a lab surrounded by test tubes. But artists and designers do research all the time, whether to find out what other artists are doing, to learn about a social issue that informs their work, or to discover practical information on graduate programs, grants, etc. The MassArt library helps members of the college community find useful and relevant information on many topics.

Talk to a librarian to get help with a research project.
