AR library and factsheets

The Artist Resource houses, within Fabrica, a free reference library, aimed at artists researching key topics such as fundraising, opportunities, volunteering, exhibition spaces and studios. The AR library is a fantastic and ever growing resource, the full list of books currently available is available as a downloadable PDF below.

The AR library also houses a number of books on funding and a series of folders put together around particular topics and a full list of both is downloadable below. Current editions of a number of contemporary art magazines including: Frieze, Crafts, Art Monthly, Art Review and Tate Etc are also held in the AR library.

The library is open during exhibition hours and at other times by arrangement by contacting Caitlin, the Artist Resource Manager at or calling 01273 778646.

Although we don’t currently have a system for loaning out books and they can only be viewed in the gallery, we are making available to download a number of our most frequently viewed factsheets and these are listed below.
