Institutional/Departmental Overview
The library opened in 1961 as a key resource for supporting the museum's educational and research mission. It has since grown to become a major center for advanced study of American art, photography and history.

With over 100,000 items, the library's research collections include a wide range of materials published from the early nineteenth century to the present. The collections emphasize the museum's art collecting and exhibition history, with particular strengths in the art of the American West and history of North American western expansion.

The library is a member of the Research Libraries Group, the Association of Research Institutes in Art History, and the Cultural District Library Consortium.
