The Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Division of Art, Prints and Photographs unites what had formerly been five separate collections under a single banner. Division holdings comprise works of art as well as reference materials on painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, photography, decorative arts, fashion, and the history of architecture from throughout the world from antiquity to the present. The Wallach Division also serves as the access points to the Spencer Collection of fine bindings and illustrated books and the Picture Collection. This tour will be welcomed by Joshua Chuang, Deirdre Donohue, and the staff who will outline the scope of the Library's research resources, and share a few materials from the collections.

Attendees are encouraged to explore the building and participate in the Artist Files SIG and Public Librarians SIG after visiting the Division. A reception will take place after the SIG meetings from 4:00-5:00 pm.

Directions: Meet the Tour Wrangler at the designated meeting point near the Registration Desk, Promenade West, on the Hilton Hotel's second floor at 1:30 PM to walk to 476 Fifth Ave between 42nd and 40th Street. Tour will take place in the Picture Collection, Room 100.
