Material Research: Overview

Guide explaining the different types of materials and manufacturers.


The frequently updated material collection in the Library at the College for Creative Studies consists of reference samples of coatings, metals, natural fibers, polymers, solid surfaces, textiles, wood surfaces, and more. This guide will introduce you to these resources: their attributes, manufacturing processes, structure, and use. This guide, however, is not a substitute for seeing and touching the samples themselves. Come in and explore!
