ART Visual Arts: Find Articles

This guide will help you find resources about visual arts.

Databases

These are good databases for starting your research in the visual arts. They can be accessed from off-campus computers using your LIU username and password.

Database Searching Tips

There is no standardized format for a database’s appearance or user interface. However, most databases offer similar search functionality.

  • Keyword searching is default on many databases.
  • Use important nouns as search words.
  • Try using synonyms of your search words: college, university, "higher education".
  • Avoid using common words: "a", "an","the","to","by", "of", etc.
  • Use double quotation marks to search for an exact phrase.
    Example: “embryonic stem cell”
