Acknowledged as one of the world's most important scholarly resources, these collections are made available to an international community of scholars and readers in the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Center.</p> <p>A central focus of the Library Council is its artist's publication program. At least every other year, the Library Council publishes a specially printed artist's book or edition that is intended to shed light on the Museum collections and to give artists an opportunity to experiment with the book as an art form. As a benefit of participation, members receive a copy of the edition published during their membership year. To date, the Council has published projects by <a href="milhazes">Beatriz Milhazes</a>, <a href="celmins">Vija Celmins and Eliot Weinberger</a>, <a href="orozco">Gabriel Orozco</a>, <a href="tuerlinckx">Joëlle Tuerlinckx</a>, <a href="eliasson">Olafur Eliasson</a>, <a href="aitken">Doug Aitken</a>, <a href="ji">Yun-Fei Ji</a>, <a href="morell">Abelardo Morell, Ted Muehling, and Oliver Sacks</a>, <a href="shettar">Ranjani Shettar and Anita Desai</a>, <a href="Messager">Annette Messager</a>, and <a href="http://www.jptoussaint.com/">Jean-Philippe Toussaint</a>, <a href="howequaytman">R. H. Quaytman</a> and Susan Howe, and <a href="GuillermoKuitca">Guillermo Kuitca</a>. A group project called <em>The Valise</em>, with over 50 original artworks by the artists Johanna Calle, Matías Duville, Maria Laet, Mateo López, Nicolás Paris, Rosângela Rennó, Christian Vinck Henriquez, responding to a novel by the writer César Aira, will be published in 2017.</p> <p>During the year the Council hosts several gatherings, often held in private homes and libraries, but also including walkthroughs of exhibitions held at MoMA and outside institutions. </p> <p>Annual dues for the Council are $2,500. If you have any questions or would like to discuss the program in greater detail, please contact May Castleberry, Editor, <em>Contemporary Editions</em>, at <a href="mailto:librarycouncil@moma.org">librarycouncil@moma.org</a> or Megan Govin, Department Coordinator, Library and Archives, at <a href="mailto:megan_govin@moma.org">megan_govin@moma.org</a>. </div> <ul class="thumbnails"> <li> <a class="item" href="/research-and-learning/research-resources/library/council/howequaytman"> <span class="image"> <img alt="Howequaytman" src="/images/learn/thumbs/howequaytman.jpg?1480544680" /> </span> <span class="text"> <h3>Susan Howe and <br>R.
