BC Libraries and Fine Arts
boston college fine arts department
Many of the departments of the University Libraries specifically support the Fine Arts, providing invaluable resources, services and guidance for students and faculty in our department.
The Bapst Art Library supports the increasingly interdisciplinary teaching, learning and research endeavors of Boston College faculty members and students in the areas of art, architecture, museum studies and photography. Adeane Bregman, the Head of the Bapst Library, has an office in Devlin Hall to more conveniently serve the needs of Fine Arts instructors and students. The Bapst Library houses a student-run gallery space as well as the University Library's extensive circulating art book collection and beautiful Gargan Hall.
Adeane has created online portals to help students and instructors locate the best resources related to their endeavors:
The Media Center collection comprises over 20,000 audiovisual items, most of which circulate to the BC community. Film instructors may put collection items on course reserve, and students can view reserve items in the Media Center in O'Neill Library during Media Center hours.
Galleries and other spaces within BC Libraries facilities are devoted to exhibits, frequently showcasing the work of Fine Arts instructors or students in their classes. These shows offer a welcome study break and opportunity to discover some of the riches of the Libraries' collections, or the talents of members of the Boston College community.
