Fall 2020 Update!
Hi everyone! Due to a server outage, all library resources are intermittently unavailable if you're not on campus. Please take a look at the video below for a demonstration of an alternative way to access some of our resources if you receive an error when trying to log into library databases like normal.
Created and maintained by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, their collection is represented through detailed timelines, maps, thematic essays, and the individual works themselves. This is a great resource to help you become familiar with the type of art produced in a specific time period or in a specific geographical location. It includes essays written by experts as well as related resources to help you along in your research.
You can walk through thousands of museums across the world and take up-close and personal looks at individual works in detail usually only possible in person. You can search by museum, artist, or artwork and narrow your search by medium, geographic location, time period, and more. You can also save your favorites to your own personal “gallery” and compare works side by side in close detail.
JSTOR offers a high-quality, multi-subject archive to support scholarship and teaching. Journals are always included from volume 1, issue 1 and include previous and related titles. Limit your search to the "Art and Art History" or "Arts" subject to help limit your search.
