Art and Art History

A brief guide to information resources in Art.

Databases for articles

The Library has several databases in which you can find scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles covering art history, artists and art-related subjects.

Overview of Importance of Articles

Articles are great sources for information for your research, especially for the following:

  • The most recent information available
  • specific information
  • As an excellent source of historical information
  • Interdisciplinary topics

Journal articles can include reports and/or reviews of current research and topic-specific information. They usually include bibliographies, which can lead you to additional information on a topic. Follow your research: if the research leads you in a new direction, chances are it’s a good direction to follow. Keep it in your area of interest, and let your interest guide you.

Articles are available from many different types of publications, including the following: scholarly journals, magazines, newspapers, chapters in books, conference proceedings, technical reports, trade journals, etc.

You will also need to decide what type of article you need for your research in terms of scholarly versus popular.

Keep your subject simple, but not too specific, for best results in researching.
