The National College of Art and Design - langservices

NCAD’s Language collection was instigated in order to give students the opportunity to build upon the language skills they had already acquired at secondary school, as well as to master new languages. Most of the courses are presented through English and are especially designed for independent study. NCAD Library subscribes to a growing list of art and design journal databases and online journals.
