While the Smithsonian Institution Libraries (SIL) comprises 20 branch libraries, some branch collections naturally overlap when meeting the needs of their library users. That’s the situation with one of our art libraries, the Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum Library located in New York City, and one of our science libraries, the Botany and Horticulture Library located in Washington D.C. It may surprise you to learn both collect books and journals on landscape design and history and the decorative arts.
Besides being a naturally busy place, the Cooper-Hewitt Library will be moving during 2011 and so there is much to be done! During this Spring 2011 semester, Stephanie Romano will be working on an analysis of selected titles for possible de-accession
