MFA Visual Art Research

A research guide created for students in the MFA program at Lesley University College of Art and Design.


undefinedWelcome!  I'm Micki Harrington, your art librarian.  I'm the Head Librarian of Moriarty Library, which is Lesley's art library. We have another library on campus, our main library, Sherrill Library.  Since we're working remotely for now, you just need to get familiar with our online library! Browse around this guide and I'll see you in classes throughout your program.

Get Help: If you have questions about finding resources and writing/citing we'll be available via e-mail and chat. Check out the chat button & e-mail under the menu to the left.  We'll be available 
Friday 1/8: 3-5pm
Monday-Friday 1/11-1/15: 9am-5pm



The Lesley Library is here to help you develop and blend research, creative inquiry, studio practice, and writing.  This MFA Research Guide is your gateway to research. It includes information about and links to both library and external resources for research in the visual arts. Use the navigational menu to the left to explore this site, and let us know if we should add anything!

Remember you can e-mail Art Librarian Micki Harrington with questions, but you might have to wait longer for a response because I'm only one person, whereas our library e-mail is monitored by the whole team! If you e-mail us try e-mailing both (,!
