Flaxman Library

SAIC’s Library and Special Collections engage with our community members in deep ways, allowing them to be effective scholars, critical users, and creators of information, applying their knowledge to their artistic, academic, and lifelong endeavors.

We believe that integrating and embracing diversity, equity, and inclusion is essential to this work. Our current efforts include creating inclusive and equitable, intellectual and physical workspaces for student, faculty, and staff learning, growing our collections to include diverse voices within art + design, and collaborating with the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Office on faculty, student and staff workshops.

The library aims to utilize frameworks such as the Inclusive Pedagogy Framework, to help us to consider our choices around both the content we teach and the means through which we deliver it.
