The Clarence Ward Art Library houses a growing collection of over 1,000 artists' books available for individuals or classes. This dynamic collection is a valuable instruction and research tool for students, faculty, and museum staff.
The Artists' Book Imagebase contains at least one image for every title in the collection. Search by title, artist/author, publication date, or call number. Save records to the Favorites folder to export as a .cvs or PowerPoint file. Contact us with questions or to report a problem with the Artists' Book Imagebase.
We purchase artists' books recommended by Oberlin faculty, students & staff. Send requests to Barbara Prior, the Art Librarian.
