“The criterion of true beauty is that it increases on examination” - Fulke Greville (1554-1628)
Education, research and practicing the arts, these are the pilars of higher art education. To provide access to information, that is the task of a library.
This wiki aims to bring together these two worlds. This publication platform focuses on research related to the library collection and is examined by its staff members. These research activities are possible thanks to the financial support of Trobador, the research unit of the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussels.
