The Wolfsonian Library accounts for more than half of the 200,000 works in the museum's collection. It houses 125,000 rare books, periodicals, reference materials, special archives, and ephemeral items including: vintage postcards, advertisements, brochures, calendars, leaflets, labels, sheet music covers, schedules, matchbook covers, and more. The artifacts demonstrate the vital role that art, architecture, and design have played in shaping perceptions of the modern world, and are preserved to reflect the times in which they were created.
