Staff and students of The University of Auckland are fortunate to have access to a suite of Libraries and Special Collections that focus on art and design scholarship, all within walking distance of the City Campus. They include The University of Auckland's Fine Arts and Architecture Libraries and the E. H. McCormick Research Library, part of the Auckland Art Gallery. As argued by Ron Brownson, "It is probably true that no one could undertake research for a publication on either historical or contemporary New Zealand art without reference to one or all of these...collections" (1988 p.19).
Established in 1956, the E. H. McCormick Research Library has complimented the resources held within the Fine Arts Library for nearly 60 years. This reference only collection, situated on the Mezzanine Floor of the newly refurbished Auckland Art Gallery, is open to the public Monday to Saturday from 1-5pm. The collection includes a number of archives, over 3,500 artist’s files and a significant collection of books and exhibition catalogues that can be searched via their online catalogue.
