About the guide

 

This guide has been created to help users search and retrieve resources from the rich collections of images of the Berenson Library in Villa I Tatti. Bernard Berenson left his renowned photograph archive to Harvard University in 1959, and became part of the collections of the Biblioteca Berenson. The library acquired over the years other materials that can also be discovered in this guide. They include image collections of various scholars, photo campaigns promoted by Villa I Tatti, photograph albums, and publications with a significant photographic component.

All the library's holdings can be found in the HOLLIS catalog. Digital images and finding aids for the archival collections are accessible through HOLLIS Images and Hollis for Archival Discovery, although both kinds of records are also visible in Hollis.
