Using the Library

Where to start?

This guide will help you select resources for topics in art and visual culture. Use the main menu to find resources on specific topics. If you are beginning research on an unfamiliar topic, first consult reference sources – dictionaries, encyclopedias, bibliographies, etc. – for  introductory information about an artist, artwork, art form, movement, or time period.

Overviews and bibliographies can be found in Oxford Art Online and the Met Museum's Timeline of Art History.
