Yale's Arts Library, linking Rudolph Hall and the Loria Center at 180 and 190 York Street, serves as the primary collection for the study of art, architecture, and drama at Yale. The Arts Library contains approximately 150,000 onsite volumes including important reference works, monographs, exhibition catalogs, and print periodicals, as well as digital resources, including online periodicals, article indexes, and databases. Arts Library Special Collections features artists' books and volumes on the book arts, fine printing, typography, and illustration, as well as archival materials and thesis projects from the Schools of Art, Architecture, and Drama. An additional 300,000+ volumes are stored in the offsite Library Shelving Facility for quick delivery to any Yale Library via Eli Express.

How I can help you. In my role as library liaison to the School of Architecture, I am available to assist students, faculty, and other researchers with their architecture and design research.
Please contact me if you have suggestions for new books, journals, or databases that we could add to the collection, or if you would like to set up an individual research consultation session or a research skills instruction session for a course.
