The Mannetta Braunstein Research Library at the Marjorie Barrick Museum focuses on the history of art, architecture, and archaeology of Mesoamerica and general museum studies. The library is named after Mannetta Braunstein, who along with her husband, Dr. Michael C. Braunstein, pour their heart and soul into the Marjorie Barrick Museum. They devote their time, money, and collections to ensure its success. Their dedication to this organization and our community is impressive, and the museum is honored to have their support.
The library primarily supports internal research and documentation of objects in the museum's collection. The library is available to all users by appointment. The Braunstein Research Library is a noncirculating library — materials must be used at designated reading spaces; materials not found in open stacks may be requested.
