Washington - The Director of Programs for the Serbian Unity Congress Ivana Cerovic and Milka Piljak visited Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection and met with Ms. Gerri Schaad, Curator for Image Collections and Fieldworks Archives.

Dumbarton Oaks provides resources for study and publication of scholarly works in Byzantine, Pre-Columbian, and Garden and Landscape Studies. Begun as a private collection by Mildred and Robert Woods Bliss in 1920, and given to Harvard University in 1940, the library and collections include art objects, artifacts, manuscripts, and rare books. It is considered one of the richest collections and research libraries of Byzantine art in the world.

The Dumbarton Oaks museum opened its doors in April 2008 after renovation.
