* Art Resources: Articles, Journals & Databases

This guide is a starting point for research in the field of Art. Resources include database recommendations, reference selections, tips, and internet resources.

Off-Campus Access

When you click on a database link on campus, you will go directly to the database.  When you click from off-campus, you will be prompted to log in.  The login screen for our library looks something like this. (NOTE: this is just an illustration)  

Article databases--Art and architecture

These databases are specific to art and/or architecture.

Multi-Disciplinary Databases

These databases cover many disciplines. 

Interlibrary Loan

Databases frequently provide full text of the articles they list, but for many cited articles full text will not be directly available in the library databases.  When you don't see a path to full text you can request a copy of the article through interlibrary loan.

To request an article submit an Interlibrary Loan Article Request Form, You can find a quick link to Interlibrary Loan on the library main page.  In some databases each citation without full text has a link to a request form that will auto-fill the bibliographic information, making it especially easy to place a request.

Whichever way you request an article, please allow ten days to receive it.  Many articles arrive within a day or two, but some take longer. Because the library incurs a cost in getting articles (though they are free to you), we ask that you not request articles that will not be useful if not received promptly.
