The Documentary Resource Centre

Whether you are a student, a researcher, a professional or simply curious, the MUDO – Musée de l'Oise Documentary Resource Centre is open to you as part of your visit to the museum, or to learn more about our collections.

The Library

The library has some 9,000 works (monographs, encyclopaedias, dictionaries, manuals, exhibit catalogues, museum catalogues, university works, etc.) covering the major areas of art from ancient times to the present.
Some forty subscriptions to specialized periodicals keep the library up to date with the world of art and research.


Acquisitions are made in keeping with the collections and events that punctuate the life of the Museum. Bequests and exchanges also enhance the collection. In 2014, the collection grew by more than 200 works. A selection of library acquisitions will also be regularly available.

Collection Documentation

Documentation plays a crucial role in the collection, management, conservation and distribution of information concerning the museum's works: surveys of works, artists and themes. This information is entered in a database that is expanded and illustrated over time. Research requests may be submitted to the librarians.

Photo Library

As part of the museum's documentation, the photo library keeps the museum's photo collection. This collection is being digitized. 
Any request for photographs of works is evaluated in terms of their use and the medium in which they will appear. It is subject to contract.

Practical information

The Documentary Resource Centre is located on the ground floor of the Rodin house, a museum annex located at 23, rue de l'école du chant. A computer station is available to users. It enables visitors to consult the library catalogue and the collection database. 

Works may be consulted only on site and by appointment.
