The Museum of Modern Art Archives and Library is a comprehensive collection devoted to modern and contemporary art. The Archives was formally established in 1989 and contains over 6.5 million unique objects including paper records, photographs, sound and video recordings, and oral histories. The Archives collects, preserves, and makes accessible the Museum’s and MoMA PS1's historical records and other primary source documents concerning art and cultural history in the 20th and 21st centuries. The Library, founded in 1932, is a non-circulating collection that documents painting, sculpture, drawings, prints, photography, architecture, design, performance, video, film, digital and emerging art forms from 1880 to the present. The collection comprises 322,000 items, including 3,800 journal titles, 14,000 artists' books, and 91,000 ephemera files on individual artists and groups. Chief of Archives, Library, and Research Collections Michelle Elligott and her team will outline the scope of the museum’s research resources, highlight a few recent projects such as the Museum's online Exhibition History, MERA (MoMA Electronic Records Archive), and the Etre moderne exhibition in Paris, as well as share a few highlights of the research collections.
