Art Research Basics

Learn to research art with ease using credible, college-appropriate resources to frame, guide, and inform your projects.

Start with Background Reading

Many students turn to Wikipedia for their initial exploration of a topic. Wikipedia is a fine place to start, but not an appropriate place to finish.  Be sure to augment your background research with sources you can actually include on an academic bibliography. Entries from the specialized encylopedias you'll find in Gale eBooks are a great place to begin.

Find eBooks through the MJC Library

While in remote learning mode, there is no access to the MJC print collection. However, the MJC Library provides access to over 30,000 eBooks via the eBook Collection: EBSOCOhost.
