Verbal/Visual exhibitVerbal/Visual: The Texts and Influences Behind Mason’s MFA Artists 


As your librarian, I communicate, consult and collaborate with students and faculty; instruct classes, and provide one-on-one research assistance in person, by phone, e-mail & instant messaging (IM).

In addition, I select books, journals, multimedia, online sources and other scholarly materials for the School of Art.

Need help? Just ask -- I look forward to working with you!


Begin by searching the databases below and collect citations and full text articles.

Off-campus access to most library online databases, e-journals, and e-books is restricted to current Mason students, faculty, and staff.

When you click on a link to an online databasee-journal, or e-book, a new window appears. Enter your current, active Mason e-mail username and password to connect via the Mason EZProxy.
