Marymount University Library

About the Collection

Marymount University has a small collection of resources about artists’ books, though it does not have any primary source artists’ books. Part of the Washington Research Library Consortium (WRLC), Marymount shares resources with other universities in the DC area. This collection could be a good place for students to begin background research about the field.

Finding Artists’ Books

In the WRLC catalog search, type “artists’ books” with quotation marks into the text box. Select “keyword” from the drop-down menu on the left, and “Marymount” from the drop-down menu on the right. Hit the search button. The results contain the artists’ books and reference works among a number of shared electronic resources.

What to Expect

Since the collection contains reference works about artists’ books, these resources can be found in the general stacks. They can be checked out of the library by patrons with an account and a valid Marymount, consortium, or state-issued ID. Contact the library with questions by emailing or calling 703-284-1649.
