The Hoehn Print Study Room is a research center located in Founders Hall and administered by Derrick Cartwright, the director of University Galleries at the University of San Diego. The Study Room provides housing of the university’s significant print collection and offers a print book reference collection to support study of the prints. Copley Library partnered with University Galleries in April 2013 to add bibliographic records for the Study Room print books.
The Technical Services department of Copley worked with the Study Room staff throughout 2013 and 2014 to provide access to the material through the library’s online catalog. The library catalog now contains over 1,500 titles located in the Study Room, with over 95% of this material unique to the university. The collection provides deep coverage of 19th and 20th century Western art, particularly the art and study of print-making, and includes classic sets such as The Illustrated Bartsch and two early 20th century series on the subject by Friedrich Hollstein.
The Hoehn Print Study Room book collection is now arranged in order by the Library of Congress Classification System. To search for the complete print collection of Hoehn titles in the library catalog, search on “Hoehn Print Study Room Collection”. Print book materials in the Study Room are not circulated but can be used on location. The Study Room is accessible to scholars on Wednesday afternoons from 1:00pm to 5:00pm and by appointment.
