The Research Library comprises over 20,000 books, catalogs, and periodicals, in addition to 40 filing cabinets of clipping files covering all aspects of dress, both period and contemporary. Our materials cover fashion, documentary photography, military and civilian uniforms, folk dress, religious vestments, occupational attire, and much more.
