When it comes to rendering nature, sometimes you need to go to the source. The Nature Library is a year-round resource for students and instructors in both studio classes and independent study. Its holdings include a variety of plants and skeletons that can be borrowed for use in on-campus classrooms, in addition to goldfish that can be sketched within the library. The Nature Library is supervised by the Fine Arts Department and managed by work-study students. Library hours are scheduled and posted at the beginning of each semester.
