Art History: Archival Collections and Primary Sources

Archival Collections and Primary Sources

Archives Directory for the History of Collecting in America

The Archives Directory for the History of Collecting is a pioneering resource created to help researchers locate primary source material about American art collectors, dealers, agents and advisors, and the repositories that hold these records.

         This digital collection represents a sampling of artifacts from the rich and varied World's Fair Collection in Special             Collections, Hornbake Library, University of Maryland (UMD). 


Directs users to archival repositories in the U.S. with collections of primary source material about women visual artists active in the U.S. after 1945 in addition to primary source material about the organizations, collectives, publications, alternative spaces, and artists' communities where the artists worked or continue to work. The Collections Database describes the primary source material for each artist (or organization, collective, publication, alternative space, artists' community) that is held by the repository.
