The collection in the Städelschule library is aligned with the range of courses on offer and the main focuses of individual classes. It comprises international publications in fine art, sculpture, painting, film and photography as well as monographs by contemporary artists and exhibition catalogues. It also has an extensive selection of books on architecture. Another focal point of the collection is publications by professors and graduates of the Städelschule plus its students. The collection is supplemented by a related press archive. The library also has key literature on art theory and philosophy to accompany relevant seminars at the Städelschule.
