Check out the Arts & Music area of mygateway.info for access to online design resources. Full-text versions of several design magazines are available through the Ebsco database, including Architectural Record, Computer Graphics World and Design Issues.

Almost all are from National Library of New Zealand collections. Access to Discover is free. Currently Discover supports the Visual Arts and Music disciplines of the Arts/Nga Toi curriculum by providing a rich selection of works by some of New Zealand's musicians, artists, photographers, designers and architects both historic and contemporary, Maori and Pakeha.

This page is written and maintained by Rebecca. My aim is to keep you informed about the design & architecture section of the library and to highlight parts of the collection which may interest you. You can find updated lists of new materials on other arts subjects, such as handicrafts & general design, on our MyLibrary pages. I'd be pleased to hear from you about this page - please contact me with any feedback.
