Finding Information on Designers: Welcome

Research Tips

Read monographs, histories, exhibition catalogs (pay attention to footnotes).
Locate journal articles by searching databases specialized in art, architecture, and design.
Find credible information on the Internet (some recommended sources are listed on the library website and in the “History of Art and Design” research guide).
While searching online resources, consider alternative names of art works and various spelling of artists’ names to improve your results.
For high-quality images check out museum websites.
