NEW! ARTbibliographies Modern

The Libraries latest acquisition is a work about art.

ARTbibliographies Modern: Abstracts of the Current Literature of Modern Art, Photography and Design provides abstracts of journal articles, books, essays, exhibition catalogs, dissertations, and exhibition reviews, conferences and symposia. It regularly indexes five hundred art, photography, and design journals and museum bulletins and selectively indexes over two thousand historical and cultural journals published throughout the world. Approximately 13,000 new entries are added each year. The Web version of the database covers volume years 1974 to the present.

The scope of ARTbibliographies Modern extends from artists and movements beginning with Impressionism in the late 19th century, up to the most recent works and trends in the late 20th century. Photography is covered from its invention in 1839 to the present. A particular emphasis is placed upon adding new and lesser-known artists and on the coverage of foreign-language literature.

This database covers all aspects of modern and contemporary art, including performance art and installation works, video art, computer and electronic art, body art, graffiti, artists' books, theater arts, crafts, jewelry, illustration, and more, as well as the traditional fine arts of painting, printmaking, sculpture, and drawing. Also covered are architecture and city planning, collecting and collectors, education, folk and applied art, graphic and interior design, and iconography.
