Files contain clippings and pamphlets and other ephemera on artists represented in the WAG collection, as well as Canadian and international artists. Access to this collection is available on the Canadian Heritage Information Network database, Artists in Canada.
The Periodicals collection includes magazines, newspapers, and other serial publications available for browsing and research. Our library subscribes to scholarly and general art magazines, featuring key Canadian, North American, and international titles as well as the Art Index database.
The WAG Archives collection represents the activities of the Gallery from its inception to the present. In addition to institutional records, the collection also includes the archives of individuals uniquely connected to the Gallery. Access information about our archives collection here.
