Interior Design Library ideas
I see a single Interior Design Library portal that faculty can link to that then has heading tabs to divide the library
into (4) different areas: Research Resources (building on what has already been created), Creative Resources,
Products & Materials, and Educational Resources.
Educational Resources will have (8) tabs covering specialty areas such as : healthcare design, historical furniture styles, universal design, architectural styles, standards and specifications, Sustainability, programming, and Building & Zoning Codes. These are divided into separate categories at the rear. In addition to online sources, texts are mentioned with links to the original college libraries. These links need to be removed and notes added that these books are available through interlibrary loan. My assumption is that NAU does not have them.
