STL Special Library Spotlight: St. Louis Art Museum: Richardson Memorial Library July 25, 2009

Posted by Cynthia in Library Stuff.

The Richardson Memorial Library of the Saint Louis Art Museum serves museum staff and the public. Items circulate to museum staff only, and public patrons are typically students from nearby schools. The library boasts several art auction databases as a common draw to public patrons. The library is getting started with digital collections, and currently has a A Visual History of the Saint Louis Art Museum Building.

It is worth noting that a little less than half of the library’s collection is written in English.  The other primary languages are German and French.

The library staff are currently collaborating with the public relations department to host a few Saturday classes on using the library.  These classes will be open to the public.

The library is part of the St. Louis research Library Consortium, which currently consists of the Missouri Botanical Garden, the Missouri History Museum, and the Saint Louis Art Museum Libraries.
