University of the District of Columbia Library

About the Collection

Like the other schools in the Washington Research Library Consortium (WRLC), the University of the District of Columbia has a very small collection of artists’ books and works about artists’ books. It may be useful to students beginning research about the field.

Finding Artists’ Books

Begin by locating the search bar on the library home page. Type “artists’ books” in quotation marks into the text box, select “Articles, books, & more!” from the pull-down menu, and hit “search.” On the next page, refine your results by selecting UDC from the WRLC institution list. Under subject terms, select “artists’ books.”

How to Get There

4200 Connecticut Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20008

UDC is easily accessible by Metro. Take the Red line to the Van Ness-UDC station, which is located right next to campus. The library is located in Building 41, and the stacks and circulation desk can be found on level 5.

What to Expect

Artists’ books and resources are located in the general stacks of the Van Ness campus library, part of the Learning Resources Division. Members of the UDC and WRLC communities may check out materials from the Learning Resources Division. Unaffiliated researchers can browse and use books inside the library, but cannot check them out. Contact the library with questions by emailing or calling 202-274-5104.
