"The purpose of this paper is to form an organizational pattern representative of art museum libraries. The writer's choice of this subject has grown out of an extended period of interest in art history and in museums as depositories of great paintings and works of art. In pursuing this interest, the writer has made pilgrimages to art museums in many parts of the country, often for the purpose of seeing a special exhibit. This interest has also resulted in the forming of a personal collection of some fifty volumes in the art reference field, the accumulation of many unbound copies of art magazines, and the preparation of a vertical file clipping and picture collection, particularly representative of modern painting. The ever increasing background information acquired through the pursuance of these projects finally led to a desire for closer contact with museum activities. The writer's comparatively recent interest in library service seemed to offer an opportunity for this fulfillment. The choice of art museum libraries, as the subject for a paper furnished an opportunity for investigation into this specialized field of library service"--Introduction.
