The Tribeca Flashpoint library collection supports and extends the learning of students in the media arts. The collection focuses on titles that support exploration of Animation & Visual Effects, Film & Broadcast, Recording Arts, Design + Visual Communication, and Digital Marketing. These core subject areas are supplemented by titles that further extend core skills in subjects such as mathematics and data, the humanities, and writing and storytelling.
All Tribeca Flashpoint community members may recommend the addition of new library resources. Library staff make final decisions about what will be added to the library collection, guided by overall consideration of collection priorities and recommendations from collection development committee members drawn from each program.
