Art & Architecture ePortal

On July 1, 2018, Yale University Press launched a one-year free pilot of its new Art & Architecture ePortal. At launch, over 50 libraries are participating in the program.

The Art & Architecture ePortal is an innovative and dynamic electronic platform that provides individuals and institutions with access to important art and architectural history scholarship. With grant funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, YUP has developed this site to offer key backlist and out-of-print titles on a wide variety of subjects more broadly available and easily discoverable within an interactive platform.

The ePortal currently features 120 titles and over 20,000 images and accompanying metadata. In addition to YUP books, scholarship from MIT Press, Art Institute of Chicago, Harvard University Art Museums, and the Yale University Art Gallery are found on the site. Princeton University Press and Harvard University Press/Hutchins Center have recently joined the project, and titles from these publishers will be made available soon.  

YUP seeks to add more books and bring more publishing partners to the platform. If you are an author or publisher interested in learning more about the ePortal, please contact Patricia Fidler ( Libraries interested in the pilot program can contact Sara Sapire (
