Twelve Bachelor of Design student book projects under the theme ‘Print is not dead’ have been qualified to be catalogued into RMIT’s permanent library collection.
In their individual design projects, students from the Semester 3-2016 Design Specialisation Course produced publications, picture books, and new alternative printed works.
After a discussion between course coordinator Ms Stefanie Neukirchen and Head of Library Services Ms Clare O’Dwyer, RMIT Vietnam Library decided to catalogue the twelve best projects from the course into the University’s valuable library collection.
Professor Rick Bennett, Head of the Centre of Communication & Design, said the project speaks to the Centre’s emphasis on quality and differentiation.
“Beyond excellent works, we encourage students to produce experimental works,” he added.
The course work collection includes children’s books, collections of short stories and poems, and publications for art and design enthusiasts.
Students, alumni, and staff at both RMIT Saigon South and Hanoi City campuses can borrow these new books from mid April 2017.
