Locating Artists' Books in the Library

One way to locate artists' books is to search the library catalogue by choosing "Library of Congress Call Numbers" from the drop-down menu and entering "BWK" in the search box. That will return the following title list.

You can also check out the artists' book display in the library (to the left of the circulation desk, by the photocopiers).

Browse by Subject Heading

Another way to search the catalogue for artists' books is to browse by subject, the results will also include books about artists' books.  The Library of Congress uses the subject heading "artists' books" for works produced by artists as visual objects and for general books about such objects.
