Welcome

Welcome to the DI Library

The DI Library supports the teaching, learning, research, and professional development of DI students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Specialized collections directly support DI’s undergraduate and graduate curricula, reflect the cross-disciplinary nature of interior design, and provide students with the information and inspiration they need to excel in their design education and professional careers.

CURRENT STATUS

Current status: the physical Library is OPEN!

The DI Library is open for the Fall 2021 semester Monday-Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. We will continue to provide virtual support by phone (858-566-1200 x 1019), email and Zoom during those hours. The Library will also provide remote services only on Fridays, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Your friendly Librarians, Lisa and Rebecca, are here to help with research, writing and citing. We will continue to offer no-contact pick-up of print library materials during the Fall semester.

Cleaning and Sanitizing

  • The DI Library is cleaned and sanitized on a regular basis according to DI cleaning and sanitizing guidelines. Staff members wear face coverings when handling library materials.
  • As we are basing policies on REALM (Reopening Archives, Libraries, and Museums) Project study results, all library print materials will be quarantined six days before being processed and made available to users.
