Art Research Guide

Resources for beginning research in art and art history. Includes guidance for finding books, articles, images, and media in the library and online.

Finding Articles: Why Articles?

Much new research in art history and theory is published in peer-reviewed journals (and in books from academic presses). Peer-review is a process where articles are vetted by experts in the field, so they generally carry more academic weight than newspaper reviews, blog posts, and trade magazines.
