Founded in 1881, the Mary R. Schiff Library has an extensive collection of over 100,000 items, which covers six thousand years of art and art history. The collection includes books, periodicals, clipping files and online databases. The Library has a unique assortment of materials on Cincinnati art and artists, a broad range of auction house catalogues from the 1900s onward, and an exclusive collection of reference materials.

 

The Mary R. Schiff Library, located on the third floor of the Longworth Wing of the Cincinnati Art Museum (the former Art Academy building), also houses the Art Museum Archives and ArtSource: the Beverly Petrie Memorial Teacher Resource Center. Please feel free to drop by during our opening hours to browse our collection, check out our ongoing book sale, or simply enjoy the panoramic views of the city below from the balcony (weather permitting, of course).
