MFA: Color & Materials Design: Professional Information

This guide is designed to steer Color & Materials Design students to Library resources that pertain specifically to their concentrations.

Professional Development



Object by Meret Oppenheim, 1936

Material Purchasing and Sourcing

The Color and Materials Library has a very large hands-on collection of tens of thousands of samples for members of the CCS community to see, touch, and explore. The items at the CML are not for sale. However, up to five items at a time may be checked out by current students for presentations and the like, as long as they are returned on time and unaltered. 

If you require larger samples, samples you can cut, or samples to keep for an extended period, the resources below may help you find the items you need. It is also helpful to contact the manufacturer or distributor of items you find in the CML which are of interest. There is often a phone number, website, or email address directly on the items or, as always, the Librarian can help you.
