Art Resources

January 26th, 2014

This month, IU East has opened a brand new art center, Room 912, in downtown Richmond.  It’s a place for study, practice, and display – Room 912 includes classroom and studio space, as well as a gallery, for IU East and the local community.  It’s a great way to expand IU East’s rapidly growing fine arts program, and our presence in the community.

Of course the library stands ready to support this expanded art program!  We have plenty of online resources that can be fully explored on campus, at Room 912, or at home – books, articles, guides, and more.  Some of our databases include ProQuest Arts, Oxford Art Online, Humanities International Index, Design and Applied Arts Index (DAAI), Wiley Online Library: Art and Photography, and Hobbies and Crafts Reference Center.  General databases like JSTOR offer access to numerous art sources, as well, such as key periodicals like Woman’s Art Journal and The Art Bulletin.

And if books are what you want, our collection covers subjects like art history, aesthetics, art therapy, and practice.  Try titles like Art Spirit, Soul Making: Interweaving Art and Analysis, Art Therapy and Anger, Beauty and Art, But Is It Art?, or any of the titles in the Art of Century series.

Need any help?  Contact us at iueref@iue.edu!  And join in the celebration at the Room 912 ribbon cutting ceremony Friday, January 31st, at 6:00 pm at 912 East Main Street.
