Livrary is conceptualized like a usual library, a listener selects a human book through the website, borrow, and return them at a designated time. The concept, instead of reading a regular book, is listening to people who serve as human books about their own stories and experiences. A real conversation takes place between the listener and the author. Human books share their knowledge, experiences and expertise in the field of design that will serve as guidance and inspiration to the listener.
The Library offers a variety of digital resources accessible 24/7 through its site, DIDI Design Library.
Books and other resources can be searched through its OPAC (online public access catalogue) facility, where students and faculty can verify its availability and place a hold for reservation.
Digital magazines and journals are available through Jstor and Vogue Archive collections.
A variety of eBooks exclusive for design courses are accessible in the Proquest eBooks database.
Online courses, tutorials, workshops, and the like are available through LinkedIn Learning.
