Art Library Spring 2020 Research Guide: Finding Articles

Rutgers Art Library Spring 2020 Quick Guide

Please keep in mind...

Please keep in mind that many publishers and virtual resources are suspending pay walls during the COVID-19 crisis.  Materials that you might not always find available may be accessible for a limited time.

Tips for finding ARTICLES...

When looking for articles there are many indexes and databases available within the Rutgers University Libraries.  The main search engine you will use for finding all materials in the Libraries will be Quicksearch.  However for the Arts you may also want to use the database Academic Search Premier.

Google Scholar

Google Scholar search box tips

Put quotes ("") around multiple words to search as a phrase rather than individual words. Good for finding exact quotations.

   Example: ["In one of its panels a very singular figure riveted my whole attention."]

2. Use a star (*) for wildcard searching, which finds multiple endings of a single word.

   Example: [paint*] finds paint, paints, painter, painting, etc.

3. Use minus sign (-) to eliminate word or term from search.

   Example: [jaguar speed -car] finds information on the animal

4. Add the term "site:" to limit searching to a single website or domain.

   Example1 : [futurism] searches only the Met's website

   Example 2: [futurism] searches only university websites
