NSCAD University


Recommended Posts

Currently housing a collection of over 50,000 books and periodicals in the visual and media arts, craft, fashion, and design, the NSCAD University Library is the only Library in Atlantic Canada specializing in the fine arts and design fields. The Library also incorporates several special collections for exhibition catalogs, artists’ books, printed matter, and rare books in specialized subject fields. A significant feature of the Library is the Visual Resources Collection, which has over 140,000 slides and 16mm films, DVDs, videos, CDs, and audiotapes. Digital images are currently available through several licensed image databases.
NSCAD has three small campuses in downtown Halifax—each with its unique architecture and atmosphere. The Fountain Campus is made up of 19 interconnected former merchant shops. The Academy Campus is a charming 19th-century building that was once a high school, and the new Port Campus is a sleek converted warehouse overlooking the Halifax waterfront. There is always something exciting going on at NSCAD. Notable visitors to NSCAD over the years include Sol LeWitt, Dan Graham, Lawrence Weiner, Joyce Wieland, Adrian Piper, Miriam Shapiro, Robert Frank, Sonic Youth, William H Macy, and many others. NSCAD offers an interdisciplinary university experience, unlike any other art school in the country. If you want to join a supportive community of adventurous thinkers and makers, it is time to begin the application process.
