The Mizzou Special Libraries Class was able to visit the St. Louis Art museum’s library (The Richardson Memorial Library) on Wednesday, July 22nd. Though the physical size of the library is quite small (housing a large portion of materials off-site), its breadth and scope are quite expansive. One impressive service they offer (not mentioned in the class tour) is the St. Louis Artists Files Project. This project is maintained in collaboration with the St. Louis Public Library.
The artists’ files are available to the public for research and include newspaper clippings, exhibition announcements, and other relevant biographical data. Files can be added upon request from the public via post or email. The online form can be found at:
