Research & Scholarly Access

Scholars, researchers and students are encouraged to research the Syracuse University Art Museum’s extensive collection.  The museum’s permanent collection of 45,000 artworks from 3500 BCE to present day includes important holdings from many areas of the world.

At this time, the safety and well-being of our community is the highest priority as we respond to COVID-19. All of the museum buildings on main campus and in New York City are temporarily closed to the general public with access only available to Syracuse University students, faculty, and staff.

The Museum staff are available to consult with all researchers to identify ways that the museum can best support your research goals, helping identify relevant works of art, participate in virtual conversations or examinations of objects, and share research materials such as collections data, object files, treatment records, and archival documents. 

Please fill out the form below to request research materials and/or to make an appointment (in person limited to Syracuse University community at this time) to conduct research at the Museum. The appropriate curator will be in touch with you as soon as possible. If you are requesting an appointment, please note that we require at least two weeks notice.
