The Ravensbourne materials library is curated by Material ConneXion, a commercial business operating in 8 major design-center cities of the world.
The materials scientists at Material ConneXion select innovative materials relevant to the courses at Ravensbourne, these are then added to the library so students and staff can become familiar with the vast possibilities of materials by browsing the physical collection for inspiration, material ideas and applications.
The library hosts 1,500 material samples and an interactive table for further research and access to the Material ConneXion database.
