The Frick Art Reference Library is famed for its wealth of resources, including books, exhibition and auction catalogs, periodicals, photograph collections, archives, and ephemera―a notable percentage of which are unique among like institutions. As a public resource for art historical research―considered one of the top five such libraries in the world―it is also a leader in digitization. For this reason, the institution has received a series of four grants from the Metropolitan New York Library Council to fund Documenting the Gilded Age, a project focused on the digitization and greater accessibility of historical materials that document art collections in Gilded Age New York.
