INSTITUTIONAL INFORMATION:

Institutional/Departmental Overview
The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum Library contains published resources that reflect and inform museum collections and exhibitions, with particular focus on modern and contemporary art, architecture, and photography. Collections include global Guggenheim exhibition catalogues, rare books, the Hilla Rebay Library, as well as an actively growing collection of artist monographs, art criticism and theory, reference materials, and periodicals.

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum Library's mission is to support the research endeavors of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum's professional staff. Staff includes curators, registrars, exhibition designers, development officers, educators, and administrative staff. The Library also serves interns, volunteers, docents, and teachers at the museum.

Formally established in 1973, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum Archives traces the development of Solomon R. Guggenheim's private collection and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, and actively collects materials on the history of the museum in New York from its inception in 1939, as the Museum of Non-Objective Painting on East 54th Street, to its present incarnation as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum on 1071 Fifth Avenue.

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum Archives exists to collect, preserve, and provide access to all historical documentation of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and the records related to the history and activities of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum for the purpose of administrative support and historical research.
