Art and Visual Culture

This guide can be used for lots of different types of research in Art and Visual Culture.

Art and Architecture Databases

An article index is a searchable database that helps you find relevant articles and scholarly sources for your research. While an article index doesn't always provide the full text of the articles themselves, it helps you identify relevant articles and citations for further exploration. Once you find an article of interest in the index, you can usually access the full text by following links to the publication or using the citation to request access through InterLibrary Loan (ILLiad) using your Bates login.

Additional Relevant Databases

These databases might not be designed specifically for research in art, but still contain valuable research on visual culture and cultural criticism.
