Auction Catalogs

Auction catalogs can be tricky to find and to search, as different libraries have differing policies about what they collect, and we at F&M have not historically collected auction catalogs. While we do have a few in our collections, they are not consistently held or collected here. When searching for catalogs in discover, try both spellings of catalog - catalog and catalogue. 

Links in the list below with an asterisk (*) next to them indicate that holdings may only be searchable, meaning they are not fully digitized. If you find something here, try to request it through Interlibrary Loan

Here are a few different places you can search for auction catalogs: 

And as always, if you're having difficulty finding catalogs, please meet with Anna for further help.
