Our library subscribes to many databases that you can search to find citations and/or full-text to articles from newspapers, magazines, and scholarly journals.

Here are the databases I suggest for contemporary art and design research. If your topic is more historical in nature (before the 1960s), all of these databases do cover that time period, but you may want to check out the Art History guide for a few more options.

Already have a citation but not full-text?

Use this search box to see if our library has a specific journal when you know the journal title you're looking for, like if you only found a citation but no full-text.


If we don't have access to the journal and/or specific issue, go to the Interlibrary Loan tab to learn how to get it for free!
