Greetings From Your New Librarian!

Hello everyone! My name is Jeff Henry I am the new Research & Instruction Librarian for the Fine Arts and the Modern Languages department. I look forward to getting to know all of you and your students during this semester.

Introducing Art Source!

EBSCOhost Publishing has recently purchased all of the H.W. Wilson databases. As a result of this buyout, Art Full Text will be phased out. Fortunately, EBSCOhost has released a new database which includes everything that Art Full Text included and much more. The only difference you should see is a new database named Art Source and the EBSCOhost user interface. I have already added the link to the new database on the appropriate LibGuides. Access to Art Source is not available through the Databases A to Z list at this time, but it should be soon. You can also access it through the following link.

I have included a few details comparing the “Old” and the “New”.

Art Full Text Coverage:

  • Full-text articles from more than 300 periodicals dating back to 1995
  • Indexing and abstracts for over 600 periodicals dating back to 1984, including 280 peer-reviewed journals
  • Indexing and abstracts for over 13,000 art dissertations
  • Indexing of nearly 200,000 art reproductions

Art Source Coverage

  • 630 full-text journals and more than 220 full-text books
  • Indexing and abstracts for many leading academic journals, magazines, and trade publications
  • An image collection of over 63,000 images provided by Picture Desk and other sources
  • Strong international coverage, including periodicals published in French, Italian,
  • German, Spanish and Dutch
  • Art reproduction records
  • Podcasts from leading museums on artists and individual works of art

New Materials

The library received and processed approximately 30 new items in the areas of Fine Arts & Modern Languages during the month of January that are ready to be checked out. Check and see if any of the materials that you have ordered are among them.

Please feel free to contact me with any research questions, and be sure to tell your students to utilize me as a resource. Library Instruction Sessions can be set up through Laura Lohr at 809-4816, or you can contact me by phone or email. Please try to schedule instruction sessions at least a week prior to the date of the session. I look forward to hearing from you.
