Welcome to your art history subject guide. This guide contains recommendations for the major databases and resources used for finding information related to art history, including background information such as art timelines, art terminology, information on artists, and information on art periods and movements. It also includes information on secondary literature, finding images, finding videos, and information on catalogues raisonné.
This guide serves as a starting point for exploring art history, conducting research in all aspects of art history, or interdisciplinary work intersecting art history.
This library guide is part of our “spotlight on the disciplines” literacy tier. In this tier you will be introduced to advanced academic research skills. These skills are developed by working with research librarians in upper-level courses specific to their discipline. The spotlight represents the in-depth instruction, library guides, advanced search strategies, and research consultations provided by the research & engagement librarians.
