DCAD graduates can have lifetime access to our on-campus Edgar A. Thronson Library for just a $50 fee. A lifetime membership entitles you checkout privileges to our more than 18,000 arts-related items—and the collection is growing every year. In addition to the library’s print holding the College also subscribes art and design scholarly databases.
