This guide contains a selection of resources, from the Library and beyond, for your research in Technical Apparel.

The DETA (Technical Apparel) Collection

For DETA studies, your "home" library is at Richmond Campus but you have access to a wide selection of library resources in both print and online formats.

PRINT Resources.
here are are 4 campus libraries, and although you're welcome to use any one, you 'll find most of the print books, journals, magazines, and films that support your course work will be located at Richmond.


  • IMPORTANT NOTE: The library is circulating print books via scheduled pickup time. Please use the library catalog to find books and then use the "hold" feature to request the books. Browsing the stacks for self-serve selection is currently not permitted.


ONLINE Resources
Many online library resources (e-books, journals, and articles) can be accessed off campus with your username and password.. You have access to thousands of journals and articles through our subscription databases. For some journals, like Performance Apparel Markets, the library provides access to a print copy and electronic copy through a direct subscription.
