The Art Reference Library of the National Gallery of Modern Art comprises books on painting, sculpture, graphics, architecture and other minor arts in order to cater to the needs of various academic disciplines such as history of art, art criticism and art appreciation. The Library subscribes to 32 art magazines of Indian and International origin; among these the important ones are Burlington Magazine, Leonardo, Art News, Art in America and Studio.

Card Indexes and photographs of works of art, owned by the National Gallery of Modern Art, are kept for reference and research purposes in three sequences

  • Classification according to media
  • All exhibits borrowed by the National Gallery of Modern Art for the Special Exhibitions arranged from time to time are photographed in black and white. These photographs are also available for study and research at the Documentation Centre.
