This guide is intended to be of use to you well beyond your time in this class. Wherever you land in your work life as an artist, remember to look for libraries; they are long-time allies for artists. One notable example of collaboration between libraries and the arts is the Library as Incubator Project, a fascinating website providing connections and information for artists, writers, performers, and librarians.
The sources listed in this guide were chosen for the relevant coverage they provide. Direct links are provided to Internet resources and searchable databases, as well as links to the library's online catalog.
As always, if you have any questions be sure to ask a Reference Librarian.
Track Your Progress
RefWorks is a web-based citation manager provided by the library. Our subscription to RefWorks lets you create a database of your research. Entries, including abstracts of articles, can be downloaded directly from a number of online research sources, or you can create records for articles, books, websites, and more. RefWorks has the added benefit of allowing you to include notes on your research. Bibliographies can be drafted from the entries in your RefWorks database in AAA, ACS, APA, Chicago, and MLA style, plus dozens of formats for publication in specific journals.
