Where are the exhibition catalogues kept?


Catalogues of loan exhibitions are not kept together in the SIA London library, but are mixed in with books on the same subject. So the catalogue of an exhibition of Italian glass will be with the books on Italian glass, a catalogue  of Picasso exhibition will be with the books on Picasso, and so on. 


Some short exhibition catalogues are in the pamphlets collection: see the pamphlets FAQ.


You may be able to access older exhibition catalogues via a gallery or museum archive. Most galleries and museums have records for their archives online, and many have digitised archives accessible via their websites.
