SAIC Digital Collections is an online institutional repository created and managed by the John M. Flaxman Library of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). The Digital Collections present curated selections of historic publications, archival materials, student theses, and artists’ works drawn from our library shelves or from other campus special collections. They are offered here for educational and research purposes.

Some of our collections, and some material, have access restrictions that limit viewing of the digital object for non-SAIC Students and Faculty. If you are a member of the SAIC community you will have access to all collections by clicking on the “Login” link in the upper right corner of the page and entering your ARTIC username and password.

SAIC Digital Collections is built on the Islandora open-source framework, which is a combination of Fedora and Drupal.
