Catalogue records for each of the 40,000 artists represented in the collection are accessible through our catalog. These records indicate the extent of the holdings for each artist available for study. Our catalog also provides keyword access to the research documentation for 20% of the individual works of art represented in the Photoarchive. New catalog records are added daily. All 1.2 million items in the Photoarchive's collection may be consulted in the Reading Room during regular Library hours.

Currently, 25,000 digitized Library negatives of works of art photographed in London auctions and in remote sites throughout Italy during the first half of the twentieth century are accessible through ARTstor.
