[BKARTS] Galleries and museums that feature artists' books?

Sorry to correct you, Carol, but "credential-holding academics" are regular people, too - even if one of my nostrils is larger than the other. Some of us are even artists!

It's the mission of libraries and such to make their resources available to those who can benefit from them. The fact that a number of libraries and museums make themselves unreasonably unavailable should not be accepted; in fact, I usually spend some time telling my undergraduates how to "get over" when doing research, because no matter how credential-holding one becomes there is always some librarian, curator or collector to cajole. I'm glad Carol considers herself among the more generous ones, but it's really no more than is due.

Our list at the American Print Alliance includes only those that answered us that
