National Art Library heritage project

Access to the Library's collections was transformed with the completion of the National Art Library Heritage Project at the end of 2003. With the help of a grant of £958,400 from the UK's Heritage Lottery Fund,  the NAL was able to transfer details of all its historic material to the Library Catalogue. The project received matching funding from the V&A itself, plus various other organisations and individuals in the UK and abroad. 

Along with all our general collection material, records for the Library's historic collections of sales and exhibition catalogues as well as the NAL's numerous Special Collections can now be searched online.
