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