This guide will lead you to resources in the Fine Arts and Art History.

How to search for books in the Axinn Library

Our Online Catalog is available through the Axinn Library homepage. If you are looking for information about an artist, use a Subject search; for work by an artist, use an Author search. When you find the call number area, you can browse in the stacks. Browsing is an excellent way to get a sense of what we own.  Our books are organized by the Library of Congress classification system.  Circulating books are located on floors 4 through 8.
