This guide was developed while the physical Sotheby's Institute of Art, New York (SIA-NY) Library at 570 Lexington Avenue in Manhattan was closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Library maintains hundreds of resources that are available to our community remotely; most require users to have SIA-NY Single Sign On (SSO) username and password, though some are freely available, and others require credentials that can be provided by the librarians.
