Arthur Jenkins library of textile arts to reopen

30
Sep '09
The Textile Museum's Arthur D. Jenkins Library of Textile Arts will reopen on September 30, following a year-long reorganization.

A non-circulating research library dedicated to the textile arts, the Arthur D. Jenkins Library was established in 1925. It is among the world's foremost resources for the study of textiles.

The library's nearly 20,000 volumes encompass the history of textiles, rugs and costume, as well as contemporary fiber art, textile structures and techniques, and textile conservation. The multilingual collection consists of monographs, serials, pamphlets, auction catalogs, slides and videotapes.

Of note are the holding's beautifully illustrated monographs, rare out-of-print books, and current scholarly studies on the art and cultural history of the cultures that produce these textiles.

It is the only library in the United States to index journals and periodicals in the field of textiles, a service which identifies for the researcher the most current textile scholarship.
