Rare Books & Reference Materials

We have a vast collection of print resources about photography, including rare books, journals, exhibition catalogs, auction catalogs and ephemera. Scholars, authors, museum professionals, artists, and students are invited to use these for research projects focusing on photography as well as cultural studies, environmental history, music, and many other areas.

Our collection can be used in-house through the Laura Volkerding Study Center by making an appointment well in advance.

Study Center hours are 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM, Monday-Friday.
