The AA/PG Library Collections
To support the research of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the National Portrait Gallery and the Archives of American Art, the AA/PG Library collection of 180,000 books, exhibition catalogs, catalogues raisonnes, serials and dissertations is concentrated in the area of American art, history, and biography with supportive materials on European art. The Library also contains artists’ books, ephemeral materials, auction catalogs, scrapbooks, microforms, CD-ROM’s and electronic links to other information resources. All can be located through the Smithsonian Libraries’ online catalog (http://siris-libraries.si.edu/). Specific information for using AA/PG Library resources can be found on the Using the AA/PG Library page.
The Art and Artist Files of the AA/PG Library are a particularly rich resource. There are over 150,000 files of ephemeral materials on art, artists, art institutions, collectors, and special subjects.
