The Menil Collection offers a variety of research resources
to scholars, students, and members.
The Menil Library is a research collection whose strengths reflect those of the museum’s permanent collection: Modern and Contemporary art (particularly Surrealism), the Byzantine and Medieval periods, classical antiquities, and non-Western arts. The library houses approximately 30,000 books, periodicals, and auction catalogues.
The Menil Archives identifies, preserves, and administers institutional records of long-term and permanent administrative, legal, fiscal, and research value to the Menil Foundation and the Menil Collection. The Archives also houses Special Collections and the Film and Media Collection.
Images from the Menil Collection are available for research and publication.
