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 Art Library also houses the Queens College Masters Theses in Art History.
Online assistance is available by appointment from a designated Art Bibliographer, a librarian with a graduate degree in Art History.
