Books, Film, and Periodicals


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.
