  • You can easily spot The Little Friends of Printmaking in a crowd—their inky hands and clothes are a dead giveaway. Their work is just as distinctive. JW & Melissa Buchanan first made a name for themselves through their silkscreened concert posters, but soon branched out into further fields, designing fancy junk for whoever would pay them money. In addition to their work as illustrators and designers, they've continued their fine art pursuits through exhibitions, lectures, and artists’ residencies, spreading the gospel of silkscreen to anyone inclined to listen.

Inter-Library Loan

Bodleian Library, Oxford 1675

Otis does not have an official Inter-Library Loan Program. However, we are happy to assist students and faculty in finding the resources that they need. In many cases, it's more cost effective to buy material than participate in inter-library loan programs.

There are many other Los Angeles-area libraries available that the Otis Community may find useful.

The Getty Research Library is often willing to send us copies of a limited number of articles from their journals. Please contact Sue Maberry with requests. Otis Faculty are also eligible for a Stack Reader Card.

We are now offering all Otis Graduate Students check-out privileges to the Loyola Marymount Hannon Library.

As part of our SCELC membership, Otis Faculty may now use other SCELC libraries. You will need an Otis photo ID and a form filled out by the Director of the Library at Otis. If interested, please contact Sue Maberry.

Students and faculty are encouraged to request books and other materials that they find lacking in the collection. The reality is that is it often cheaper and faster to buy the needed material than to order it through inter-library loan.
