Art History Resources: Articles

Using Electronic Indexes and Databases

Citations to scholarly journal articles may be located using the databases listed in the right-hand column. A 'citation' is the information you will need to locate an article in a specific volume of a journal, including the author's name, the title of the the article, the title of the journal, the volume number, the issue number, and the page number(s) of the article. You may repeat the search string you used to locate books, adding key terms to narrow very broad searches.

To determine if the Kenyon Library owns a journal title listed search for the journal title in Consort.


A keyword search for jennifer bartlett in Art Full Text resulted in a listing of 102 periodical articles (including articles about her, book reviews of books about her, exhibition reviews, illustrations of her works in journals).  To narrow this search I added the term 'pastels' to one of the search term boxes. 

Getting articles not available at Kenyon

To obtain articles in journals which our library does not own you must place Interlibrary loan requests online. If the journal is in another Consort or Ohiolink library you will normally receive a xeroxed copy of the article in 2-3 weeks. If the journal is not in either Consort or Ohiolink it may take longer for our staff to locate a copy elsewhere in the country. Please allow yourself plenty of time when requesting a copy of a journal article.
