Find Books


  • You may need to look up both, Picasso AND Cubism to find good resources. Or "Girl with a Pearl Earring" AND Vermeer.
  • To tell the catalog to search for a phrase, place the phase inside of "quotation marks."
  • You can also try including the words : criticism, analysis, or interpretation.
  • Remember to look at the bibliographies of works, to find more on your topic.
  • Limit your search to "Reference" if you just need a quick definition.
