We have several art history books on reserve, which means they are stored behind the circulation desk and aren't publicly accessible. These books are usually required or suggested reading for your course, such as a textbook, and have limited check-out time or may not be removed from the library.
To see the reserves, go to the homepage and click "Course Reserves" tab. Then type in the book title, professor's name or course number. You can ask for these books at the circulation desk (first desk upon entrance to the library).
To search for an artist:
Type your artist's name (Lastname, Firstname) and do a keyword search. Books entirely about your artist, as well as bigger books with a specific chapter or section about your artist will appear.

To search for information about a time period or geographic region:
Type your subject (e.g. 1600's, Italy) and do a keyword search. Tip: Try searching Art, CountryOrTime (e.g. "Art, Italy" or "Art, Renaissance.")
To search for information about a genre:
Type the genre (e.g. "typography" or "painting") and do a keyword search. Once you click on a title, notice what's written under "Subject" or "Cor.Sub." to find better search terms.
The library groups books about similiar subjects together, rather than by author's last name. You can go to these sections to browse through the collection; call numbers beginning with N will help you look for art history books.
