WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute received a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services' Museums for America program to support digitization of portions of the Clark's library collection. The $109,925 grant will be used to digitize portions of the Mary Ann Beinecke Collection of Decorative Arts, which is housed in the Clark's library, and to make these materials publicly available worldwide.

In the mid-20th century, weaver and author Mary Ann Beinecke assembled an important collection of books on decorative arts with particular strengths in costume history, handicrafts, and textile design. The collection, which spans the period from 1550 to the 1970s, is an important resource for scholars, curators, and textile artists.

"This grant is an affirmation of the quality and depth of the Clark’s library and will assist the Clark in realizing our commitment to make the library's vast resources available to the public," said Michael Conforti, director of the Clark. "We are grateful to IMLS for supporting this important project and look forward to sharing this important collection with a wordwide audience."
