The eco-aware New Materials Resource Library at California College of the Arts is a one-of-a-kind collection featuring over 1800 different materials intended for interdiciplinary use and inspiration. Its contents are accessible through a searchable database where students can find out information on a specific material's fabrication process, applications, properties and, most notably, its ecological data. The goal is to add another thoughtful layer to the material selection process by teaching students to recognize the advantages of designing with sustainability-- or at the very least, a greater awareness-- in mind.
I looked around the website for some further info and links and I can't seem to find any. I believe the Library is a resource only open to CCA students at this time. If you's like to find out more, I think you can email Kim Lessard at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
