The Fiske Kimball Fine Arts Library, as part of the University of Virginia Library system, serves the McIntire Department of Art, the School of Architecture, and numerous other departments at the University of Virginia. The Fiske Kimball Fine Arts Library houses a large collection in many formats: print, electronic resources, digital resources, images, and construction materials. These collections are increased each year by means of allocations for books, periodicals, databases, digital images, etc. Sources of funding include the Commonwealth of Virginia, as well as endowed funds that create annual income designated for use to purchase particular types of materials. The collections cover all aspects related to architecture, landscape architecture, architectural history, urban and environmental planning, archaeology, and the visual and performing arts. The Fine Arts Library provides study areas for patrons seeking both quiet and interactive spaces. These spaces are equipped with access to technology and software that aid in scholarly research and production. In addition, the Fine Arts Library connects patrons to all University Library resources, including government documents, geo-spatial data, maps, rare books and manuscripts, data management resources and more. Staff work with faculty to instruct students in research methodology and resources, and are also available for one-on-one consultations to assist in all aspects of the research cycle— from inspiration through creation and publication.
