The E.P. Taylor Library & Archives is a leading Canadian centre for research in art.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Library & Archives has suspended its public hours until further notice, but it is providing reference service via email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Decisions about when and how the AGO might accommodate more visitors into the building will be led by public health and government officials. The library catalogue remains online at http://library.ago.net.
Our collections include over 300,000 volumes (including rare books and artist books), artist files, and art-related archives and special collections including the historical records of the AGO. In addition to supporting research related to the AGO’s art collections and exhibitions, we assist visiting researchers from the museum and academic communities as well as the general public.
