After selecting the artist you will write on, you will need to research their work using both Internet and Library resources (all artists have some sort of web presence and all have publications).
You must supplement any Internet research with at least one book or monograph and at least one scholarly article from the Olin Library or via InterLibrary Loan.
When possible, please reference a text devoted entirely to the artist you are researching or devoted to an exhibition that includes the artist. This will provide an understanding of their work in a more thorough manner than representation in an anthology would allow for.

WorldCat gives you access to millions of titles in more than 9,000 libraries around the world!
Here are a few pointers when using WorldCat:
1. WorldCat includes more than just books, so if you are interested in books only, limit your search to just books.
2. To find exhibition catalogues for individual artists search for the word "exhibitions" as a subject and the name of the artist as a title or keyword.
3. You can use interlibrary loan to request the books you find in other libraries. BUT make sure there is enough time before the assignment is due for the book to be delivered to you via the Olin Library!
