STAR 311 Ideation and Series: Databases: find articles, images, and more

Databases -- Best Bets

Databases help you find journal articles, images and video tutorials. Below are selected key databases to assist you with your discovery and research.

Search tips

Use art research databases to find examples of other artwork that engages with ideas/themes/systems that interest you.

Use databases from other disciplines to find articles and information about those ideas/themes/systems themselves.

Art Article/Journal Databases

Databases for other disciplines

Your research may sometimes extend outside of art and design sources. Use other discipline-specific databases to locate resources related to sociology, psychology, environmental studies, or any other field!
