Thank you for your interest in our wallpaper collection. We are currently about halfway through an IMLS grant to improve the online access to our wallpaper collection, search functions, digital images, make corrections to the database, and add data for a new gift of over 2000 papers. Please keep checking back over the next year to see the changes.
