The Flaxman Library Special Collections house an array of archives, rare films, artists’ publications and other unique materials that support SAIC’s curriculum and allow for in-depth research with original source materials. All Special Collections are non-circulating, as they require special stewardship, but are made as widely available as possible for teaching and learning. We welcome class visits (by appointment) as well as individual researchers from the School and the general public. Representations of many of our Special Collections can be found in SAIC Digital Libraries.

An archive of past exhibitions and events can be found here.
