Multidisciplinary databases are a good place to start regardless of if your topic is related to art or not, especially in the early stages of research. For topics not related to art, start here, and if you need more in-depth information, talk to your librarian, or visit a research guide related to your subject.
Depending on the type of project you are working on, you might need to use a non-art database. Below are some commonly covered topics, but we have access to hundreds more. Contact your librarian, email@example.com, if you need other databases.
Newspapers can be great places to find reviews of exhibitions, or information about artists.
When using databases to find articles, sometimes the article will be available as a PDF Full Text or HTML Full Text. In these cases you can click on those links and access the article immediately.
If PDF or HTML is not available you can use the FindText button:
FindText will search the library catalog to see if the article is available elsewhere through the library, either online or in print. If you are not able to find the item through the FindText button, you can request articles through ILLiad.
