Arts Research Room

The Arts Research Room is located on the second floor of the library and contains a display of current art & design journals, arts related collections and comfortable seating to use while you browse. Funding for the Art & Design Journals display initially came from the Goldsmiths Alumni and Friends Fund (formerly known as the Annual Fund) which is generously supported by alumni, staff and friends of Goldsmiths.

This is only a selection of titles we have in the library. If you are looking for a specific online journal, the best way is to search in BrowZine.

You'll find the most recent issues of art journals on display in the Arts Research Room (highlighted in red).
Back issues can be found in the Main Collection (highlighted roughly in Green-). The Print Journals from 700-999 follow the Oversize sequence next to the windows
