Getting Started

Many of us get started at Wikipedia. But Wikipedia is sadly lacking in good, thorough articles on arts & humanities topics!

Try the library's online encyclopedias and dictionaries for short-but-sweet entries about artists, techniques, movements, and more.

Find Books

SuperSearch is your best tool for finding books.

Limit to books at Brock by selecting "Books & Media @ Brock" from the left-hand side of the screen.

When searching for secondary sources and criticism, include terms such as: History and Criticism or Criticism and Interpretation

What if Brock does not have the book I need?

Use RACER (also known as Interlibrary Loan) to request it from another library! This service allows users to search in all Ontario university and worldwide libraries to place requests for items that Brock does not own.

First-time users need to register & create a PIN. More information here.
