Below are links to our current listings of catalogs.

At this time we only have one employee at the museum.  Time does not permit her to go through the catalogs to find particular items of interest to copy.  Our apologies for not being able to offer that service at this time.
One copy each of any of these catalogs is available to the public.  Cost of copying is 25 cents for each black & white page and $1.25 for each color page.  Minimum price for each catalog is $5.00 for members of WVMAG and $12.00 for non-members.  $3.50 postage for the first catalog -- $1.00 for each additional one when ordered at the same time.  If any of this research material is used in publication please credit WVMAG as the source.

Many of the catalogs listed as "half size" may be copied as 2 catalog pages on an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of paper for a savings of copying cost. Best to check with Museum before ordering.
