Finding Newspapers

You may want to search historical newspapers and other periodicals to find contemporary reviews and other information about exhibitions or artists. You can search newspapers in OneSearch by looking for the Newspaper Search link at the top of the page. 

You can also search directly in some of our historical newspaper databases. 

Other Primary Sources

You may be able to find digital archives of some artists' letters and papers. Try searching google for the artist's name along with the words "archives" or "papers." If you'd like to work with a librarian to see what might be available, make an appointment! 

Depending on your topic, you may be able to find relevant primary source material in one of the library's many primary source and archival databases. While this kind of information won't be useful for every research project, depending on your topic you may find something useful.
