A Tour of the Cary Graphic Arts Collection

The RIT Cary Graphic Arts Collection at RIT is one of the world’s premier libraries on graphic communication history and practices. Our growing library holds over 45,000 volumes, over 130 archival collections and a working collection of historic printing equipment. The Cary Collection’s mission is to advance an understanding and appreciation of the history of graphic communication through the acquisition, preservation, and presentation of primary source material. We hold a wide range of educational classes and workshops, facilitate researchers from around the world, and regularly host exhibitions and lectures. In addition, we maintain a growing digital collection in a constant effort to make our rare and unique artifacts accessible online. Join us for an online tour of the collection and have the opportunity to discover some of our unhidden treasures!
