The Kandinsky Library is the research and documentation centre of the musée national d'art moderne-centre de création industrielle. It is one of the most important libraries specialising in the arts, where all the visual arts are represented, together with all media and supports providing source information on visual creation of the 20th and 21st centuries.

The collection is divided into six main sectors: books, reviews, archives, the photographic collection, audiovisual documents and documentary dossiers.

The library has a particularly well-stocked array of artists' books, private archives and 20th century manuscripts that have come from collectors or major artists.

The Kandinsky Library is open to researchers with appropriate credentials.
