A research database is a search engine that allows you input search terms to locate quality journal articles and other scholarly materials on a particular topic.
Through the database you may then link to full text content if owned by the Colby Libraries, or to the art journal in print if owned by Colby. Some of the best journal articles in the art field are only in print, due to copyright issues pertaining to art reproductions. Use of these art research databases will allow you to locate articles in our excellent art journal collection
Some back issues of important art periodicals are in print-only format. Bound back issues of art periodicals must be requested from Library Storage. Please have your article citation with you and ask a desk assistant for help in retrieving print issues of our art periodicals.
