Getting Started

We have over 25,000 print titles in our library, and more than 75,000 eBooks. Whether you choose print or online, it's really your reading choice. But note that (1) there are different titles in each collection so there is value in using both and (2) there are limits to downloading and printing ebook content.

eBooks are available through our eBrary search engine. You can also search our main catalog, but it will require a few extra steps to limit the results to ebooks only.


Search Tips!

  • Try searching by the artist's last name, by the time period in which they lived, or by the art movement with which they are associated.  For example, you could search for "Picasso," but also by "Art 20th Century" or "Cubist Art."  Then consult the book index to find pages specifically discussing Picasso.
  • Search by "Art Appreciation" to find materials that will help you with approaching works and forming your own opinions.
