These are informative and often unique sources on MoMA exhibitions, programs, persons, events, and artworks. </p> <p> Press releases are accessible in two parts: <a href="/research-and-learning/research-resources/press_archives/1920s">1929&ndash;1997</a>, and <a href="http://press.moma.org/index.php?/press/pr_moma_exhibitions">1996&ndash;present</a>. </p> <p> <a href="/research-and-learning/research-resources/press_archives/1920s">1929&ndash;1997</a> releases are virtually complete. These press releases have been scanned from originals housed in the <a href="http://arcade.nyarc.org:80/record=b606174~S8">Library</a>.</p> <p> <a href="http://press.moma.org/index.php?/press/pr_moma_exhibitions">1996&ndash;present</a> releases are selective. These include all major news announcements, film and gallery exhibition releases, and MoMA building project releases.</p> <p> Press release titles are searchable within a given year. For example, to find 1945 releases with the word <i>photograph</i> or <i>photography</i> in the title, click <a href="/research-and-learning/research-resources/press_archives/1940s/1945">1945</a> and search (PC: ctrl+F; Mac: command+F) for <i>photograph</i>. (Note: some years are listed in successive screens. Repeat the search for each screen). To search the full text of a given press release, open the PDF file and search (PC: ctrl+F; Mac: command+F) for <i>photograph</i>.</p> <p> To learn about other ways to research the Museum, please see the <a href="/learn/resources/library/faq_art_research">MoMA Research FAQ</a> or contact the <a href="mailto:library@moma.org">Library</a>.</p> <p>(Adobe Acrobat Reader <a href="http://get.adobe.com/reader" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">required</a>)</p> <p><b>Browse Titles by Year:</b></p> <p> <a href="/research-and-learning/research-resources/press_archives/1920s">1929</a> | <a href="/research-and-learning/research-resources/press_archives/1930s">1930&ndash;39</a> | <a href="/research-and-learning/research-resources/press_archives/1940s">1940&ndash;49</a> | <a href="/research-and-learning/research-resources/press_archives/1950s">1950&ndash;59</a> | <a href="/research-and-learning/research-resources/press_archives/1960s">1960&ndash;69</a> | <a href="/research-and-learning/research-resources/press_archives/1970s">1970&ndash;79</a> | <a href="/research-and-learning/research-resources/press_archives/1980s">1980&ndash;89</a> | <a href="/research-and-learning/research-resources/press_archives/1990s">1990&ndash;97</a> </p> </div> </div> <div class="column-c"> <div class="JS_Widget"> <a href="/widgets/collection/all_collection_works" rel=""></a> </div> </div> <br class="clear" /> </div>
