THE DAM'S LIBRARY
The Library of the German Museum of Architecture on Hedderichstrasse has been open to the public since 1989. It currently contains more than 20 000 volumes on architectural history from 1800 to the present day. The focal points of the library are architectural theory, monographs and periodicals. In the field of architectural theory, the library seeks to present a variety of authors and publications, from Vitruvius and Alberti to classical modernism and contemporary thought. It also aims to provide an exhaustive collection of monographic works on German architecture since 1900, as well as non-German architects since 1900 who have played an important role in international architecture or in the architecture of their respective countries. The periodicals department is of particular importance, and includes not only historical publications but also sixty current magazines, periodicals and annuals.
The library of the DAM is member of the network of Frankfurt museum libraries (Verbund Frankurter Museumsbibliotheken), which provides on its website access to all associated museums' catalogues.
