The Sherman Fairchild Reading Room

The Morgan Library & Museum is an important research center for scholars. We make our collections as accessible as possible within the limits set by their rarity and fragility. The Sherman Fairchild Reading Room serves researchers from artists, to historians, to writers, and more, who demonstrate a need to consult the Morgan's rare materials. We also have a large reference collection, including facsimiles, microfilms, and bibliographic works that are not readily available elsewhere. Neither rare nor reference material held by the Morgan circulates. Researchers are welcome to apply to study items from the Morgan's collection.
