this package of 500 fonts for only $150 [believe me, it's a steal] gives you a solid start on a basic and classic type library you can use legally and fully once you purchase. start by checking this list of fonts against what you already have. if you already have most of these, then you can pass. if you are missing many of them, then i'd highly recommend purchasing this for your time at kcai.

adding fonts from adobe typekit!
typekit is an online resource from adobe that you can activate through your character palette in indesign, illustrator, photoshop, etc. because kcai has an institutional account for creative cloud, you have access to typekit's "free" plan. this gives you access to sync limited fonts through typekit, which magically appear in your font menus. awesome!
in your character palette, click on the font name box.
scroll to the top of the font menu and click on the "add fonts from typekit" button.
you will be taken to the typekit webpage, where you'll have to log in using your adobe i.d.
once you are logged in, you can browse the collection. if a typeface says "in free plans", you can click on that and hit the "sync" button to activate it. neato!
