Off-Site Requests

Off-site requests are placed through our catalog. They require up to three business days for retrieval. Requests placed after 12:00 p.m. will be processed the following business day.

You must be a registered researcher at the Frick Art Reference Library to request off-site materials. To learn about registering to use the Library, see Visit > Library > Admission.

If you are unsure when requested materials will be available to examine at the Frick Art Reference Library, call the Reference Desk at 212-547-0641 or email library@frick.org. Since items are retrieved within a fixed time period, we do not notify researchers when they arrive. See the delivery schedule below.
