As an SIA student, you will benefit greatly if you make use of some of the other libraries in London, as well as the Institute's own collection.
In this section of the website:
Copac and WorldCat explains how to find out which libraries have the books and other resources you need.
Other libraries in London lists the most important libraries you will have access to. It describes how to join each library and what services are on offer.
Databases at other libraries lists some online resources which are not available via SIA, but can be accessed at other libraries.
Archives provides an introduction to some of London's collections of unpublished art-related material.
