Browsing books, whether through Franklin or in our library stacks, is a great way to get inspired and find images that may not be available online. Get started by learning call numbers and subjects in fine arts and design housed in the Fisher Fine Arts Library. We've created some lists that are organized by call number and subject in the boxes below.
When browsing Franklin, look at the Format/Description note to know if the book has images; the abbreviations "ill" stands for illustrated and "col" means color images. In this example, the book is mostly (chiefly) illustrated with some of the images in color.
Library of Congress call numbers are arranged alphabetically. After reading the first letter or letters (such as N or NA), books are arranged by number.
