Welcome to the Art History research guide! Here you'll find many resources to support your art historical research--encyclopedias, book and article databases, and more. 

In addition, I am available to help you with your research! Here are some of the things that might mean:

  • refining your research question
  • establishing what the best information sources are for your research
  • identifying effective search terms
  • learning what various search tools can do, and how they work
  • exploring different kinds of information and if they benefit your research
  • tracking how your research questions change through the course of research
  • getting access to specific materials you had trouble locating
  • understanding your rights and responsibilities regarding your use and creation of knowledge

No question is too big or too small! Please make an appointment with me using the link in my bio--I look forward to working with you!
