In addition to exhibitions, fellowships and awards, and programs, Dumbarton Oaks makes its collections and scholarship accessible through print and online publications, born-digital research projects, online catalogues and databases, and curated selections from our museum, library, and archival collections.


The publishing program at Dumbarton Oaks began with the printing of the Inaugural Lectures in 1941. We publish scholarly series in our dedicated fields of study; catalogs of our collections; and books and articles on the history of the institution. Our publishing projects are dedicated to continuity of scholarship; at the same time, we are constantly searching for new ways to deliver scholarly content in the digital culture of the twenty-first century.
