Welcome to the Academy of Art Library guide for research in the Liberal Arts. This guide is intended as a starting place for researchers, pointing to tools for finding books, scholarly articles, reviews, and other topical and collection-related information. Please use the informational tabs to find resources in different information categories. Please see the research guide for the School of Art History for resources in that area of study.
