The University of Ljubljana's Department of Art History Library was established in 1920 at the same time as the Art History Department by Izidor Cankar, based on the private library he had purchased from August Stegenšek of Maribor. The library grew with many subsequent donations, and its last reorganisation took place in 1993.

The specialised library collection of around 30,000 items is freely accessible, and since 1995 it has also been computerised. The library offers databases on CD-ROMs, collects all diploma papers and MA/PhD theses, and purchases current literature on the history of art, art theory, and monographs.


Collection

The collection has old and new bibliographies (Bibliography of the History of Art (BHA)), encyclopaedias, lexicons (Allgemeines Kuenstlerlexikon, Thieme-Becker Kuenstlerlexikon) and biographies (A Venturi, Storia dell’Arte Italiana). The library also holds some books of historical value, for example, Crux Triumphans et Gloriosa by Bossius (1617), Topographia Archiducatus Carinthiae (1688), Prospettiva de Pittori e Architetti (1799), and Albert Duerers Schriftlicher Nachlass (1908).

The Department of Art History has prepared a collection of photographic reproductions (also on CD-ROM), which enables comparative studies of Slovene, Austrian, and Italian medieval fresco painting, sculpture, and architecture.
