Provisions Research Library

Provisions is an independent research library (not formally connected to the University Libraries), with collections formed around the meridians of art and social change. 

Provisions is organized alphabetically by author name, meaning all of the subjects and themes are mixed. This encourages browsing and discovery, but can also make it a little more difficult to find specific items. You can search Provision's catalog online (see link below).
