ARTH 422: Contemporary Issues in Art

Art Source

Tips for Searching

Use this info to learn what scholarly articles are, how to search for them, and where to find full-text articles. 

First, review the assignment to make sure that you understand what's expected. What sources are required? Do they need to be peer-reviewed? Come from a specific source? etc.?

You can use databases like Art Source, ProQuest, and JSTOR to find the most useful articles for your research.  Make sure you use the "Refine Your Search" options to get the most helpful articles faster. You can use these options to find scholarly/peer-reviewed articles, more recently published articles, and even articles relating to different subjects. 

Check for Full-Text? InterLibrary Loan

 In some cases, full text for an article is not available in the database you are searching.  It is possible that these articles may be found in bound periodicals section of the library; to find these, you'll need to search the library catalog for the journal title (this is listed in each article citation).  

If the library owns the journal, the next step is to see whether we have this exact issue (volume, month, etc) that matches the citation. 

What if you can't find the journal in our library catalog, or if we don't have the exact issue that you need?  Submit an Interlibrary Loan request to get it from another library!
