Catalog searching

To search for an artist:

Click here to search for books.

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.


Browsing sections:

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.
