SCAD Libraries have just acquired access to two fabulous new online resources: Stylesight and Reference USA. Like all of our databases, these can be accessed anywhere, 24/7. All you need to do is login with your last name and SCAD ID card number. Please give them a try and let us know what you think!
Stylesight is an incredible resource for those who are studying fashion, fibers, interior design, and marketing. It provides:
- up-to-date fashion news
- trend and color forecasting
- coverage of events and trade shows
- create custom color palettes and fashion collections
My favorite feature, though, are the 2 million+ images of the runway and street, store displays, interiors, vintage fashions, royalty-free graphics, and even a wide selection of inspirational themes to get your creative juices flowing. Use the links in the left-hand column to start browsing – and budget lots of time, because it’s visually addicting!
Anyone seeking information on U.S. and international businesses will want to give Reference USA a close look. Search for a business to learn about its:
- brands and products
- names of executives and managers
- business size
- stock analysis
- recent news
- historical data
Reference USA also indexes residential data from around the U.S., making it an ‘online phone book’ for finding individual contact information.
