Interlibrary Loan

The Frick Art Reference Library can borrow books and other materials not held in its collections from other research institutions from around the world for on-site use. The Library offers local interlibrary loan and document delivery services through a partnership with the libraries of the Museum of Modern Art, Brooklyn Museum, and Metropolitan Museum of Art. Holdings for these institutions, along with the holdings of the Frick, can be searched using the Arcade and Watsonline catalogs. In addition to borrowing materials from other libraries, the Library lends items to other institutions for use by their researchers. Please note that not all materials are available through interlibrary loan.

To borrow items from another institution, see the Interlibrary Loan Form.
