Using Library Search for Art Topics

Tips and tricks for searching more efficiently in Library Search and other Databases

  • If you are searching for a phrase, use quotes in the search.   (ie. "human body" )
  • You can also include multiple terms with capital AND   (ie. "human body" AND degas)
  • Using just an artist's last name can broaden searches.   
  • Make sure to look at the subjects in great sources to find others on the same subject.
