Books, Film, and Periodicals

The Art & Design Collection from the Corcoran


The collection contains more than 35,000 volumes covering art, design, and related subjects. Our photography collection is especially strong, containing many volumes which are not held at other institutions in the DC area. The books circulate with standard borrowing privileges. Please note the wide selection of additional art books throughout Gelman Library stacks.


Films from the Corcoran collection can be found on the first floor of Gelman Library together with GW Libraries' media collection.


The collection provides access to current print periodicals, including scholarly journals and magazines. Subjects include contemporary art, photography, interior design, decorative arts, art history, and more. Please see additional journals in the Gelman Library collection on the third floor, as well as in Eckles Library. Thousands of electronic journals are available through GW Libraries databases. Explore journal availability through GW Libraries’ journal finder.
