Emerging markets: Other libraries

Guide to studying the art market in emerging economies.



Library Hub Discover will find you books in other libraries in the UK (plus Dublin).

Library Hub Discover does not tell you which of the libraries it lists you can access. For this info see: 


The key library is likely to be:

  • British Library for both art resources and business resources.  Access the EMIS (Emerging Markets Information Service) here

For contemporary art from emerging markets:

  • National Art Library at the V&A
  • Tate Library at Tate Britain
  •  MACA guide for more art libraries 




WorldCat will find you books in other libraries worldwide.  Coverage is uneven; e.g. there are some major African cities with no libraries included.

The SIA librarians will help you find books and access libraries anywhere in the world: though please note our knowledge of many countries is limited.
