PHFA 401 Professional Development for Artists: Databases

About Databases

Use library databases to find journal articles, news articles, images, and more. A few tips can help you search these databases more effectively:

  • Search multiple databases at once
  • Think creatively about terms and try different permutations (e.g., some databases may use "wall text" while others use "label")
  • Keep a list where you document what terms you searched and where (in which database, catalog, website, etc.) you searched them
  • Use Boolean operators to construct a powerful search
