The library serves the Trondheim Academy of Fine Art. Following a 50-year independent history, the Academy was merged into NTNU in 1996 and is now part of the Faculty of Architecture and Fine Art. The library opened in 1988, initially in the context of the Academy, and was incorporated into NTNU Library in 1997.
