Bloomsbury Library - 90 Day Trial

The KCAD Library is pleased to offer KCAD students, faculty and staff a 90 trial to both the Bloomsbury Design Library and Bloomsbury Architecture Library.

The trial will start on January 13, 2020 and run for 90 days. Live links will be provided at that time.

We encourage faculty to review the information provided on the Bloomsbury page. It is our hope you will use and promote these resources in assignments, papers and projects during the spring 2020 semester. We also welcome your feedback and comments about these resources during the trial.

At the end of the trial we will review usage statistics to determine if these resources are a good fit for KCAD.

Thank you so much!
