For articles (as well
as other materials):
Go to: http://library.nyu.edu/collections/find_articles.html
You must access this via the NYU network or it won't work. (If you bookmark
this, it will show up in your bookmark list as "The Bobst Library
at NYU: Databases.)
Click on "Humanities." You will see a table listing a series
of databases. The two most important for your purposes are "Art Abstracts"
and the "Bibliography of the History of Art." To use either,
click on the word "Web" in the box to the right of the listing.
This will bring up a search window. Enter the artist's name (in LASTNAME,
FIRSTNAME format) or the topic you are researching.
Also, see the Art Index at http://www.nyu.edu/library/bobst/database/about/artretro.htm
and the Periodical Index at http://www.nyu.edu/library/bobst/database/about/wilson.htm
Again, when you get to the display screen, click on “Web”
to get a search window.
