About this guide
Tips on how to use this Research Guide:
Search the Catalog:
In the library's catalog you will find not only books, DVDs, and other physical resources, but you will also find electronic articles and e-books. This page gives catalog search tips, including how to locate Spanish language resources.
Search the databases:
Many of you are familiar with Academic Search Complete and some of the other frequently used databases at the Criss Library. Keep in mind that there are over three hundred databases representing a wide variety of disciplines. For your use, I've selected the ones most appropriate for researchers in the field of art and art history. Each database has an indication as to whether it is full-text, citation or abstract only. To use the databases from off campus you need to first create a library account using the instructions found here. You will then have access to the databases and other resources 24/7 from your home computer.
On-line tutorials and RefWorks:
Finally, I've also included pages linking you to on-line tutorials created to illustrate how to use a particular tool or service and to our bibliographic citation management system, RefWorks.
