Research gateway to art literature

If you are responsible for an art library wherever in the world and your holdings are catalogued following international standards in terms of cataloguing rules and data structure then send us a description of the collection profile. A request for becoming partner in the Art Discovery Group Catalogue can be made at any time in informal way, by contacting the project manager or one of the committee members. Participating in the group catalogue is with costs, referring to a one-time fee for loading your data to WorldCat (if this is not already the case) and to an annual maintenance share. In both cases, the amount depends on the size of your library.


The committee:

  • Geert-Jan Koot (Library of the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, The Netherlands) (Project manager)
  • Wendy Fish (Library Royal Institute of British Architects, London, Great Britain)
  • Sandra Ludig Brooke (Marquand Library of Art and Archaeology, Princeton University)
  • Véronique Goncerut Estèbe (Bibliothèque d’art et d’archéologie des Musées d’art et d’histoire de la Ville de Genève, Geneva, Switzerland)
