Katherine W. Dumke Fine Arts & Architecture Library
Who? What? Where?
The Katherine W. Dumke Fine Arts & Architecture Library is located on the second floor of the Marriott Library, east of the main stairs. Here you'll find the collected works of classical & modern composers, a selection of reference books spanning the performing and visual arts, computers and peripherals--keyboards, editing stations, scanners, etc.--for working on multimedia projects.
The focal point of our facility is the Fine Arts Showcase Collection, comprised unique, rare, and fragile materials (books, primarily) of interest to all arts patrons. We have artists books, international architecture magazines, boxed sets of Asian art books, oversized tomes on the history of costume design, catalog raisonnes for visual artists, graphic novels, turn-of-the-20th-century sheet music, and much more. We allow anyone to view Showcase items within the library. And some materials can be checkout for seven days.
The staff at the Fine Arts & Architecture Library is always ready to assist you with your art and art history related questions. You can easily find us at the Fine Arts Reference Desk, 9am-6pm, Monday through Friday -- or use the form on this page to email us.
The most recent print issues of select ART & DESIGN journals and magazines are available for browsing in the Fine Arts & Architecture Library. They are shelved by title and can be checked out for 7 days!
Request older print issues, which are stored in the Automated Retrieval Center (ARC), through the library catalog. If you need help with this, just ask a librarian.
