Cary Graphic Arts Collection

The Cary Graphic Arts Collection is one of the country's premier libraries on graphic communication history and practices, housing some 40,000 volumes and a growing number of manuscripts and correspondence collections. It also manages an extensive graphic design archive, consisting of more than 45 archives that document the work of significant 20th-century modernist graphic designers.

Numerous scholars and researchers from around the world, including RIT faculty and curators, use the Cary Collection’s rich materials — as do College of Art and Design students, who also have access to the collection.
