General Description

Hillyer Art Library provides broad-based coverage of the history, theory, criticism, and practice of the visual arts. Its collections include over 120,000 volumes, microforms, and 225 current serials subscriptions to support teaching and research in almost all fields of art. Drawing on a long tradition of vigorous collection development, Renaissance art and architecture and Greek, Roman, Asian, and Medieval art are areas of special collection strength.

While printed sources--books, exhibition catalogs, microformat publications, and periodicals--continue to form its most important collections, Hillyer Art Library has significant holdings of other materials as well. Electronic versions of all of the major indexing and abstracting services for current visual arts literature are available through the Smith College Libraries Art & Architecture Resources Page, as are other Internet-based resources.
