Story
Introduction
Established in 1962 to support museum staff and the Clark/Williams Graduate Program in the History of Art, the Clark library has become one of the major art reference and research libraries in the country. Focusing on post-medieval European and American art, the collection is outstanding in the Italian and Northern Renaissance, Baroque, and French nineteenth-century fields and is well balanced in other areas. A recent grant has helped to expand collections of contemporary Asian, African, and Latin American art. The library's resources include approximately 230,000 books, bound periodicals, and auction sales catalogues, with current journal subscriptions numbering around 650
