The Collection

Our collection includes print and electronic resources on all facets of art and art history, theory, criticism, materials and techniques. These include books, bound periodicals, pamphlets, exhibition catalogs, and periodical subscriptions.

We have particularly strong holdings in western European and American art, architectural history and archeology.

The library maintains a Rare Book Collection, items from which are available upon request and can consulted within the library.

Research Assistance

Online assistance is available by appointment from a designated Art Bibliographer, a librarian with a graduate degree in Art History.
