In 2011, the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) generously funded a collaborative grant to the Guggenheim and Whitney Libraries. This project enabled each library to digitize key material from the personal libraries of Hilla Rebay, inaugural director of the Museum of Non-Objective Painting (precursor to the Guggenheim), and Juliana Force, inaugural director of the Whitney. Publications include American and European art historical texts, art exhibition catalogs, biographies of artists and collectors, philosophical and political treatises, and New York City guides and tourism pamphlets.
On June 9, 2009, the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) approved a two-year grant to arrange, describe, digitize, and make accessible five collections in the archives that address the administrative and exhibition history of the first 50 years of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
In 2008 The Hilla von Rebay Foundation, established in 1967 with the aim of fostering, promoting, and encouraging public interest in nonobjective art, granted the Guggenheim Archives funds to arrange, describe, and selectively digitize The Hilla von Rebay Foundation Archive.
In 2007, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum Archives received funding from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) to support the digitization of the Frank Lloyd Wright correspondence, a collection that documents the construction of the museum between 1943 and 1959.
