The purpose of the Toledo Museum of Art Archives is to identify, collect, preserve, and make available for use the records of the Toledo Museum of Art which possess enduring historical, administrative, legal or fiscal value. The Archives is the official repository of historical documents and permanent records of the Toledo Museum of Art, its staff, its founders, trustees, and any other related organizations, trusts or individuals which have enduring value to the Museum. The Archives provides management with historical documentation which may serve as a framework and support for decision-making, as well as making material available to scholars and researchers related to the history of art, the Museum, and the collections.
