Store Description: Otis College of Art & Design, formerly Otis Art Institute and Otis/Parsons, has been in existence in Los Angeles since 1917. The mission of the library has changed over the past 30 years and we no longer need many of the items in our Special Collections. We intend to offer a few hundred legally deaccessioned items to raise funds to purchase more appropriate books for our patrons.
