Researching CMA Objects: #4 - Look for articles at CIA

This is an easy four step guide that will walk you through the process of finding information about objects owned by the Cleveland Museum of Art.

Step 4 - Look for articles at CIA's Gund Library

  Use the library's database to find articles

CIA's Gund Library subscribes to many databases that can help you locate articles on any topic. For researching objects at the Cleveland Museum of Art, use Art Source to find articles. Art Source covers a broad range of art related subjects and includes over 600 full-text journals, more than 220 full-text books, and a collection of over 63,0000 images.

Use the advanced search options to look for your artist or the title of the object you are researching. If you get too many results by just searching the artist, try adding "Cleveland" to your search. Sometimes, this brings back results that talk about objects by your artist in the CMA's collection.

If you are off campus, you will need to log-in to a proxy using the same username and password you use to log-on to a computer on campus.
