Graphis 1971-1980, 1988-2005
Art Index is a serial index to articles from an extensive range of art-related periodicals. Like an index found in the back of a book, each volume of Art Index is arranged alphabetically, with users being able to search by either subject or author. Journal titles in each entry are abbreviated, and users can refer to the key at the beginning of the volume to find the full title. Art Index can be used to look up citations for articles on a given topic, and those articles can then be found via the library's databases or print periodicals, or through interlibrary loan if a particular journal is not in the library's collection. Reeves Memorial Library holds every volume of Art Index from 1968-2011, available in the O'Hara Room on the lower level of the Learning Commons.
