The Fine Arts & Architecture Library is open during all normal Marriott Library hours.

The showcase houses unique collections including artist’s books, Latin American avant garde collection, musical scores, and much more! Items in the showcase are primarily for in-house use, and can be obtained by giving a photo identification or UCard to one of our staff members while you use the items. Scanning and copying from most of these items is allowed within copyright.

When viewing an item record, in the tab for “Locations and Request” the description “Fine Arts Library Collection” or “Fine Arts Library Folio” indicates that the item is located in the Fine Arts & Architecture Library showcase. You may also search for a keyword or subject heading and then refine your search by selecting “Fine Arts Library Collection” from the facets on the left side of the page.

Are you looking for an item that the Fine Arts & Architecture Library doesn’t own?

We are happy to support your research needs. Suggest a purchase or email Luke Leither or Greg Hatch
