"This splendid issue of Museum Studies explores the history and collections of the Art Institute's libraries, an integral component of the museum's educational and scholarly activities from its inception in 1879. Beginning with an overview of the libraries' history by their director, Jack Perry Brown, the publication includes over thirty short essays that explore outstanding printed books and journals in the holdings of the Ryerson Library; notable architectural materials in the Burnham Library; and other rare and interesting documents and objects in the museum's institutional archives."
