The Fisher Fine Arts Library collects materials to support research in art and architecture, the decorative arts, photography, historic preservation, city planning, and urban design. The entire history of art is represented, from antiquity to the present. Fisher collects items in many languages. Monographs, exhibition catalogs, journals, facsimiles, reference materials, ephemeral materials, and microforms are all available for research. Fisher acquires electronic resources, including image databases, electronic journals, indexes, and other reference works.
