The Craft in America Center’s Library Holdings Online
The Center has spent the past year revamping its specialized library and cataloging its resources. We have installed brand new library shelves, which have given us plenty of space to house our over 3,000 books, catalogs, and magazines, and to display selected artworks from our permanent collection.
The new library project began last summer, when our previous library shelves could no longer hold our growing collection. We decided we needed stronger and more spacious shelves that would allow us to comfortably store our books and display our art collection. During the months leading up to purchasing and installing these new shelves, our staff became fluent in the Dewey Decimal Classification system in order to properly catalogue our books. While learning the DDC system, we acquired a subscription with OCLC and now any OCLC members can view Craft in America’s holdings on WorldCat.com! The public is also now able to view and search titles in our collection on our website at www.craftinamerica.org/library.
We hope visitors and scholars will make use of Craft in America’s vast resources. We are aways available to help with any inquiries anyone may have relating to our library holdings at the Center, please feel free to call us at 323-951-0160 or email us at [email protected] if you have any questions.
