Library & Archives
The Guggenheim Museum Library and Archives house primary and secondary research resources that inform the museum’s exhibitions and acquisitions as well as document its history. Select collections are open to qualified scholars and researchers by advance appointment. More
The Guggenheim Archives traces the development of Solomon R. Guggenheim’s private collection and the Guggenheim Foundation, and actively collects materials on the history of the museum in New York from its 1939 inception as the Museum of Non-Objective Painting on East 54th Street to its present incarnation as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum at 1071 Fifth Avenue. More
The Guggenheim Library contains published resources focused on modern and contemporary art, architecture, and photography. Collections include global Guggenheim exhibition catalogues, rare books, the Hilla Rebay Library, as well as an actively growing collection of artist monographs, art criticism and theory, and periodicals.

Library and Archives staff members routinely discover new and surprising items from the museum's vast trove of records and share their discoveries on the Findings blog. Begun in 2009 as part of a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission to digitize five of the museum's archives, Findings has since expanded to share a broad range of photographs, posters, correspondence, drawings, and other ephemera.
