Online Resources
In addition to our extensive print holdings of books, periodicals, auction and exhibition catalogs the Currier Art Reference Library and Archives also subscribes to several online databases. In addition we have identified several open access resources to aid in your research.

The Currier’s Archives contain the institutional records of the Museum from its inception in 1914 and opening in 1929 to the present, including exhibition history, press clippings, scrapbooks, photography and architectural plans.  The Archive also contains several manuscript collections including the Mary and Edwin Scheier Collection, The Henry Melville Fuller Collection and the Charles S. Parsons papers. The Isadore J. and Lucille Zimmerman House Collection and the Zimmerman House Records provide a comprehensive view of the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Usonian house.
