Make An Appointment To Learn More About Artists' Books

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.
