About the Amon Carter Museum of American Art Library
The Amon Carter Museum of American Art library's noncirculating collection is reflective of the museum's art collection; as such, it focuses on American art and photography from the early nineteenth century to the present. Broader focuses include the cultural, social, and intellectual history of the same period. The library is especially rich in materials related to the American West.
Collection highlights include the finest examples of nineteenth- and twentieth-century illustrated books and western Americana, nineteenth-century newspapers on microfilm, and an extensive vertical file collection offering a range of material on artists, museums, commercial galleries, and subjects. The library's collection includes over 40,000 books and exhibition catalogs, 800 periodical titles, and over 100,000 pieces of microform, including the Archives of American Art on microfilm.
