This year the New Museum Store will transform its CAA conference booth into an intimate private library featuring the Museums newly launched Library Service, which offers the expert consultation of the New Museum Store to both public and private collections of contemporary art publications. As a personalized shopping service for contemporary art books and DVDs, Customized Approval Plan and Slip Plan customers receive unparalleled individual attention in the development of their collection. The Library Service also provides a free monthly e-newsletter, the HOTLIST, which informs subscribers of the latest and greatest contemporary art publications.

In response to the overwhelming interest from academics and academic libraries, the New Museum Store launched the first domestic library service dedicated exclusively to contemporary art titles in 2006. The Library Service brings over 10 years of book selling expertise and a selection of art books and DVDs from over 1500 publishers located in over 30 countries directly to our customers, saving them valuable time and energy.

Visitors will be able to browse titles from the New Museum Stores acclaimed selection of contemporary monographs, texts, and visual reference titles; review past HOTLISTs; set up their customized plans; and view photographs from artist Nina Katchadourians Sorted Books project.

For Sorted Books, Katchadourian culls through private and public book collections selecting books to arrange so their titles can be read in sequence. Her book clusters, presented as photographs, provide a snapshot into a librarys focus, idiosyncrasies, and inconsistencies a cross-section of that library’s holdings. Her project highlights how artists and students find meaningful inspiration within the holdings, processes, and structures of libraries.
