When the Board of Trustees met on June 21, 2013, they designated four large departments as schools, including one within the College of Architecture, Design, & Construction. The Department of Industrial and Graphic Design (DIGD) exceeded the university's criteria for school status, which were based on degrees offered, enrollment, faculty, student credit hours and prominence within their fields. DIGD will now be known as the School of Industrial and Graphic Design!

The reclassification as a school indicates the former departments' level of achievement with a suitable title, and this new identity will allow these schools to compete even more effectively with programs of similar size at peer institutions.

Congratulations on this recognition, School of Industrial and Graphic Design!

A hefty olive-green box has appeared in our reference section: The Phaidon Archive of Graphic Design. This "book-in-a-box" is great (and fun) to sift through for inspiration and enrichment.

Phaidon archive 002     Phaidon archive 001

It contains five hundred sheets of card stock which together give a history of graphic design. Each sheet has two sides: one reproduces an important work of graphic design (see Side 1 below), and one includes the name of the designer, client, title of the piece,  and historical/biographical remarks (see Side 2 below). Works range from the Gutenberg Bible to the Mercedes-Benz logo to the Obama posters (and the Periodic table is in there too!).

Side 1:cheret2 Side 2:cheret1

Also in the box is an index you can use to look up works by title, designer, client, or category. We currently have sorted the pages alphabetically by last name of the designer, but it is possible to sort them chronologically or by category. Which do you think is best?

The journal contains both a research and an industry section, in order to publish scholarly research and practical applications together. In the research section, peer-reviewed articles present current research findings about high performance building design and construction, while the industry section covers applications, techniques, and processes, featuring case studies and articles written by practicing building professionals.

The Journal of Planning History, a peer-reviewed academic journal, is published quarterly on behalf of the Society for American City and Regional Planning History (SACRPH). It was established in 2002 to succeed SACRPH's semiannual publication Planning History Studies. The journal focuses on planning history in the Americas, but encompasses transnational planning experiences. It also covers a range of topics within the field of planning history, including planning history pedagogy, planning history in planning practice, the intellectual roots of planning processes, and planning history historiography.

The Journal of Planning History is available online from February 2002-present. Look up JPH in the library Catalog here.
