Because Rand Hall is being renovated, the Fine Arts Library print reference collection is presently located in B56 East Sibley Hall. In Olin Library, the print reference collection is located on the first floor.
Examples of resources in print and online include: bibliographies, directories, dictionaries (of symbols, terms, techniques, etc.), a few catalogues raisonnés, subject encyclopedias, guides, handbooks, manuals...
Subject Encyclopedias are great for: choosing a topic, educating yourself quickly, perspective on a topic, variant spellings, vocabulary, terminology, bibliographies of critical sources.
Learning how to interpret citations you find in scholarly books and articles is a critical research skill and essential to efficiently finding the material you need for your assignments. Watch this video to learn how.
