Books And Ebooks

Look for books and ebooks in Gleeson's catalog Ignacio! Ebooks can be read directly online, physical books can be shipped to you during this time of remote learning! Use the "request" button to initiate the home ship process. Use Interlibrary Loan to request books that are not available at Gleeson. ILL books are normally delivered within about 1-2 weeks, but occasionally requests take longer.

Suggestions for searching Ignacio

  • Try a Subject Search for the designer or author's name (ex: Eames, Ray or Morris, William) to locate books ABOUT that person, including autobiographies, collections of letters, etc.
  • You might also try Subject searches for terms such as Design History or Fashion Design.
