Collection database

The Allen’s collection of more than 15,000 objects is accessible via a searchable, online database on this site, called eMuseum.

Researching the collection

In addition to its published catalogues, the AMAM maintains a number of archival records useful for academic research. These include curatorial files on every accessioned object and AMAM exhibition, an electronic collections database, and the Eva Hesse Archive.

Identifying and viewing works in the collection

Researchers who wish to view museum files and objects should make an appointment by emailing us here or calling 440-775-8645. Appointments take place in the Print Study Room from Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and are subject to availability (when classes are not scheduled to use the room).

Object viewings 
Independent object viewing sessions for works on paper take place primarily during the lunch period, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Up to three works on paper may be requested. Appointments must be scheduled at least one week in advance. As appropriate, longer viewing sessions with more objects may be arranged.

Curatorial files
Curatorial files often contain information about provenance, previous attributions, and conservation data, in addition to general research notes. Appointments to view files must be made at least 1 business day in advance and are limited to one hour. A maximum of 10 files can be pulled per visit. Please note that many of the files contain historical letters and documents that must be handled carefully and only when necessary.

Eva Hesse Archive
The museum houses the archive of American artist Eva Hesse (1936–70), which include artist’s notebooks, diaries, photographs, and letters. All of the materials have been digitized and are searchable through the collection database; interested scholars can also consult the archive’s finding aid, which provides a detailed overview of the archive’s contents. Appointments to view materials in person must be made at least one week in advance. Two of the datebooks in the archive have been published in a facsimile edition, which is available for purchase from the museum.
