[edit] Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present basic resources and practical strategies for undergraduate art history research. The paper is based on the author's experience as both an art librarian and instructor for a core requirement art history course. The plan detailed in this paper covers every step of the research process, from exploring the topic to citing the sources. The resources listed, which include subscription databases as well as public Web sites, are deliberately limited to a manageable number. Additional topics include defining the scope of inquiry and making appropriate use of Internet resources such as Wikipedia. The paper provides the academic librarian with clear guidance on basic research resources in art history.
