Welcome to the Fashion Industry Research Guide!
Here at RCBC we believe in guaranteeing easily accessible, affordable content to benefit the learning experience of our students, enriching them academically, and professionally, in their chosen career path.
Think of a Lib Guide as a digital filing cabinet, full of tools that can do everything from enhance supplementary instruction to provide relevant, topical resources that will benefit a student’s prospective job hunt and professional development well beyond the classroom.
Lib Guides are part of a grant-funded RCBC initiative pertaining to freely available Open Educational Resources (OERs), which aim to change higher education into a comprehensive and diverse experience that works to serve students and ensure success is always within their reach.
How You Can Help with COVID-19
If you have not yet heard about this movement, Sew the Curve Flat, this is a way we can help our communities!Sew the Curve Flat is a group of volunteers sewing cloth (usually cotton) masks for various communities (healthcare, at risk populations). Check out their Facebook group or their website: sewthecurveflat.com.
- If you must leave the house for material, please consider either ordering online or curbside pickup as options
- If you wish to volunteer, make sure to find out if there is a pattern/material requirement for who you are donating the masks to
- Please remember that according to the CDC: HPC use of homemade facemasks: In settings where facemasks are not available, HCP might use homemade masks (e.g., bandana, scarf) for care of patients with COVID-19 as a last resort. However, homemade masks are not considered PPE, since their capability to protect HCP is unknown. Caution should be exercised when considering this option. Homemade masks should ideally be used in combination with a face shield that covers the entire front (that extends to the chin or below) and sides of the face.According to the CDC, fabric masks are a crisis response option when other supplies have been exhausted
