Tate Library Now on Copac
The complete catalogue of the Tate Library has now been loaded onto Copac. The library covers British art since 1500 and international art since 1900. The focus is on fine art in the Western tradition, although coverage is being extended to other regions. The collections' emphasis is on modern and contemporary art. The library holds over 40,000 books, 140,000 exhibition catalogues and many rare items in its special collections.
Copac is the UK union catalogue of national, university and research libraries, and allows users to search across the catalogues of several institutions at the same time.
