Academic books are great for information on broad topics. You can search for books online or browse them in the library.
The Library shelves are organised by Dewey Decimal Numbers, which means all the books on a subject are in one place.
For books on Visual Communication topics, look on:
eBooks - can be accessed directly from the library catalogue & read online from your own home.
Print books - some books are only available in print. You can still search for them in the library catalogue. Just note down their location and come into the library to borrow them.
