About Marquand Library of Art and Archaeology
In 1908 Allan Marquand, founder of the Department of Art and Archaeology, formally deeded his personal collection of 5,000 art books to the to the University. With the benefit of generous endowments, the collections have grown to well over 300,000 volumes. The majority of these materials are housed together in Marquand Library, while the rest are located in the Annex or Firestone Library. The strength of the early collections was in Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque art and architecture, and classical archaeology. While building on these strengths, the collections have also expanded to cover all periods of art and architecture from all areas of the world. Archaeology has been expanded to include strong collections in medieval, Islamic and pre-Columbian archaeology. Outstanding collections of Chinese and Japanese art, architecture and archaeology have also been built. Over the last two decades, the library has added significantly to its artistic photography collection. Materials are collected in all formats - books, periodicals, microforms, videos, and electronic databases - and in multiple languages. The rare book collection contains rare first editions, scarce copies of early texts and numerous facsimiles.
