Library Catalogue

Our library catalogue allows you to see what's available in our library collections and much of our archive collections. EBSCO Discovery Service hosts our library catalogue as well as many full-text digital resources that we subscribe to. This programme combines a range of information sources including Art Index Retrospective and Art & Architecture Source. Learn about how to search our collection and access thousands of full-text articles below.
