Bill Kent Library

Bill Kent Library

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 gifted to the Warburg Institute, London, and which Monash University later purchased. The Bill Kent Library was opened in 2010 and named after our Founding Director.

The library supports the research and teaching activities of the Prato Consortium for Medieval and Renaissance Studies.
