This guide was designed to assist you with accessing resources for AHST 2222 Byzantine Art. It is organized based on the type of research you will need to conduct: Historical Context, Subject Matter and Symbolism, Style and Function. It is important to note that some of the resources do not fit neatly into only one category. For example, a recommended resource for symbolism might also be helpful for researching the style of a work of art.
The types of materials that you will need for this assignment include reference materials, books, and scholarly articles. :
- Reference Materials: online or in print reference materials include encyclopedias, dictionaries, and atlases. Many of you will find them useful for this assignment.
- Books: search for books/ebooks in the library catalog (use the Finding Books tab on the library homepage or see the Using eBooks tutorial under the Tutorials tab).
- Scholarly articles: search for articles using library databases or Google Scholar using the Finding Articles tab.
