About the Library

General Information

The Library provides access to materials and resources to assist Moore students in their academic studies and studio practice. The library also provides faculty with resources to enhance their teaching and scholarship.

The Library collects, preserves, and provides access to research materials in multiple formats. The collection is comprised of over 50,000 monographs, more than 100 current journal titles, multimedia materials, and a number of databases.These resources provide broad coverage of art history, theory, criticism and the practice of fine arts and design, art education and liberal arts.

Moore is planning a major renovation of the Connelly Library, and the project could commence as early as summer 2018. Q&A sessions led by Daroff Designs will be held to solicit community input.There will be other opportunities for feedback once a schematic design has been developed.


Members of the public with research needs specific to the collection of the Connelly Library may visit by making an appointment in advance. To schedule a visit please contact the circulation desk at: All visits must be approved by library staff.
