Find Books

Classic catalog

Guides for searching both of CalArts' library catalogs are attached at the bottom of this page.

An important thing to remember when searching the catalogs is to specify to search just books - otherwise, you will get results for moving image items (DVDs, films, etc). 

Books on Reserve
There are a number of books on reserve at the circulation desk for your class.  To see what is on reserve go to the Classic Catalog, and select the  "Course Reserve" tab, and then select "Furniss" in the drop down list of instructors.

Reference materials
Reference materials can be an excellent place to start your research.  You can find biographical, company, and general info on your topic.  Reference sources often have bibliographies which can lead you to a number of great sources.

Lent, John A. Comic art of the United States through 2000, animation and cartoons : an international bibliography. Westport, CT: Preager, 2005. Print. NC1420 .L47 2005
