The E.P. Taylor Library & Archives is a leading Canadian centre for research in art.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Library & Archives is currently open to researchers by appointment only, Tuesday through Friday. We have very limited capacity due to current limits on working onsite, so it may not be possible to accommodate researchers at their desired date and time. Please email us at email@example.com to request an appointment. All researchers are welcome, but priority will be given to those needing to consult unique and rare collections.
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.
