The New School is pleased to offer access to Stylus and WGSN, two premiere trend forecasting services.
- Go to the library website at library.newschool.edu. (If you're off campus, sign into My New School and click on the "Libraries" link in the Apps Locker.)
- Click on the 'Browse Databases' box within the 'Books & More' box.
- Once you're on this new page, click on S or W and then scroll down until you get to the aforementioned databases.
You do not need to create a personal account to use either resource. However, you can create an account in WGSN in order to sign in to WGSN.com without going through the library website; or to create a personal workspace where you can save images.
Stylus and WGSN both offer global trend reports. Stylus is more interdisciplinary and covers design and consumer products including food, fashion, furniture, product design, and technology. WGSN focuses more strongly on fashion.
To learn more about Stylus and WGSN, you can request a 1-on-1 appointment with a librarian.
