With funding from the Terra Foundation for American Art, the Archives of American Art at the Smithsonian has been able to digitize all 8,058 pages of the Louise Nevelson Papers. The collection is arranged in 9 series, from Series 1: Biographical Material, to Series 9: Photographs. Each series is represented by a single image on the collection summary page of the website; clicking that image takes a viewer into the subseries arrangement. For example, the Photographs are further divided into 5 subseries such as Family and Personal, Exhibitions and Installations, and Art Work. The subseries provide folder views, making it possible to browse items such as a photo album of Nevelson's 1975 Exhibition at Minami Gallery (Tokyo, Japan). The complete 25-page finding aid is available on this website, and also as a downloadable .pdf, making it extremely easy for a researcher at distance to request more information.
