The Bill Kent Library comprises over 2,000 titles. Almost half of the collection is dedicated to the fine arts, while the remainder focuses on Medieval and Renaissance political and cultural history, and its classical antecedents.
Most of the collection is drawn from the libraries of Nicolai and Ruth Rubinstein (d. 2002) which they bequeathed to the Warburg Institute, London, and which Monash subsequently purchased.
The library supports the research and teaching activities of the Prato Consortium for Medieval and Renaissance Studies.
The library was opened in 2010 and named after the Founding Director of our centre.
You can consult the collection catalogue online. You can view the materials on-site only.
The library is open by appointment only.
Please contact the Manager if you would like to access the library.
