      Publications

      Journals and magazines cannot be taken out on loan, but you are welcome to browse the latest issues and back copies held on the first floor of the Library.

      Journals and magazines are a valuable source of visual and written material to help you in your research. It’s a good idea to get to know the titles related to your course because:

      • They are up to date.
      • Often the material in them covers contemporary activity and news.
      • Young animators and designers will be covered in journals long before they are covered by books.

       

      Below you will find a small selection of magazines and journals related to your course.
