Rijksmuseum Research Library

Located in the main building of the Rijksmuseum, the Rijksmuseum Research Library is the oldest and largest art history library in the Netherlands. Its collection has grown without interruption since 1885, and some of its most valued titles include action catalogues from 1772 to 1932 and the Netherlands’ National Photo Collection. A recently completed 10-year project has restored the library’s famous 19th-century reading room.—Miranda Smith
