The Edmund and Joanna Research Library at the Art Gallery of NSW has one of the most outstanding collections of fine art publications, rare books and manuscripts in Australia. It also houses the archives.
The library collection reflects the Gallery art collection with an emphasis on Australian and British art and in more recent years contemporary art, Asian art and photography. Our ephemera files documenting Australian art and artists now comprise over three-quarters of a million items, beginning with early exhibition catalogues and pamphlets through to catalogues and reviews of current art shows. The library also holds extensive files on Australian art societies, competitions, prizes and art institutions as well as press clippings on the arts.
