This guide is intended to help you find resources for your annotated bibliography and final presentation.

Finding Background Information

In many cases, you'll want to learn some background information about a particular art movement, an artist, or a piece. Wikipedia can be a great source of background information, but did you know that there are encyclopedias specifically dedicated to art? Many of these are available online, only from the library.

Use these sources to learn more about the history of a person, piece, or movement, and even to give you some ideas about what you might want to explore in more depth.
