Department of Textiles, Graphic Arts and Design has since 1991 also organised publishing activities. Up to now, the department has published over 100 volumes in the areas of textiles, fashion design and graphic arts, in printed and electronic forms. Department of Textiles, Graphic Arts and Design’ publishing activity includes monographs, textbooks and other study materials, miscellanies of various contributions from scientific and professional symposiums and study material written for seminars. The above-mentioned literature can be purchased on the ground floor at the reception desk (Snežniška 5).
When discussing publishing activities, it is worth mentioning that some departments also publish their own professional journals. The oldest such journal published by the Faculty is the Mining and Metallurgy Quarterly (Rudarsko-metalurški zborniki), which first started being published regularly in 1953; today, four issues are published annually. In 1998, it changed its name to RMZ – Materials and Geoenvironment (RMZ – Materiali in geookolje). The journal Geološki zbornik, which is issued once in two years, is published by the Department of Geology. The Tekstilec journal, which has been regularly published since 1958, has been issued by the Department of Textiles, Graphic Arts and Design since 2007. Four volumes are released each year.
