ART 563: Studio III

This guide will help you use library research tools to find information and inspiration for your research in healthcare design.

How do you find and use art books?

  • Check the locationavailability, and call number before heading to the stacks.
  • Books are organized by subject, so take time to browse the stacks. You might find something useful you didn't see in the catalog.
  • Think of the various chapters in a book as similar in scope to scholarly articles. You do not have to read a book cover-to-cover to enhance your understanding on a topic.
  • Look at the bibliography and trace some of the footnotes/citations to discover more sources.

Library Catalog

The UofL Libraries Catalog is the easiest way to find books available at the UofL University Libraries. You can search directly from the Art Library's website.

To make it a bit easier, when you search the Library Catalog, use the filters on the left-hand side and select "Art Library" so you can narrow down to books located in Bridwell Art Library.

You can also search for materials on healthcare design in the Kornhauser Health Sciences Library's Catalog

Art E-Books

The Art & Architecture e-Portal (A&AePortal) provides access to authoritative eBook resources that features important works of scholarship in the history of art, architecture, decorative arts, photography, and design from some of the world's finest publishers and museums such as Art Institute of Chicago, Princeton, and Yale University Press.

All books are full-text searchable and the site is very easy to navigate. These titles are also discoverable in the Library Catalog.
