LIBRARY & ARCHIVES PROJECTS IN NEED OF FUNDING
Building History Collection
The Guggenheim seeks funding to arrange, describe, and selectively digitize records in the Building History: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum collection. The collection contains nearly 3,000 architectural drawings, hundreds of photographs, and 128 cubic feet of records relating to the construction of and renovations and additions to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum from 1945 to the present.
Support is needed to establish a research center incorporating a reading room to foster and facilitate scholarship. A research center would provide researchers and scholars with a place to reference and analyze non-circulating materials in the library and museum archives, including books, periodicals, exhibition catalogues, original correspondence, and other special collection materials.
