Art & Architecture ePortal pilot trial

the Art & Architecture ePortalSyracuse University Libraries is pleased to participate in a pilot program providing access to the Art & Architecture ePortal for the 2018-19 academic year.

The platform allows for searching book chapters and images in these texts, and for creation of customized lists.

It is especially important during this pilot phase (2018-19) to receive your feedback. Please send comments and questions to Tasha Cooper, collection development and analysis librarian at nacoop01@syr.edu.
