Finding books & ebooks

Search here for eBooks.


  • Surprisingly, ebooks can sometimes be easier to understand than highly specialized journal articles. You are looking for a good chapter, or even introduction, not an entire book to read! 
  • Combining the level of analysis you may find in a book with the analysis found in an article makes your research not only easier but more interesting.
  • Search using words that might appear in the title, summary or subjects of a book.
  • Try searching for artist's names rather than specific artworks.
  • Try broadening your search to the artistic movement they are associated with, the time period, the genre (eg "casta paintings"), or their country of origin.
  • Use the table of contents and "Search within" tool in an ebook to identify a useful chapter or section.
