Art Source: A gallery of resources for art, design and architecture research

Art Source is the go-to database for research in art or architecture, writes Romany Manuell, subject librarian for Art, Design and Architecture.


Have you heard about Art Source?  There’s no other database with as much high-quality content for your art, design and architecture research. Art Source is based on a merger of databases from EBSCO Publishing and H.W. Wilson, but it also includes a bunch of fresh, new sources never previously made available.

If you attended the MADA exhibition “The Abstract” last October, you’ll already be familiar with the peer-reviewed journals in our print collection. Did you know that many of those journals are also available online through Art Source? 

Art Source covers a broad range of related subjects, including:
  • Archaeology
  • Architecture and architectural history
  • Art history
  • Contemporary art
  • Costume design
  • Decorative arts
  • Folk art
  • Graphic arts
  • Industrial design
  • Interior design
  • Landscape architecture
  • Museology
  • Painting
  • Photography
  • Pottery
  • Printmaking
  • Sculpture
  • Television
  • Textiles
  • Video
Many of the articles in this database are full-text, but Art Source also provides detailed indexing and abstracts for journals, books, podcasts and more. If you’ve previously used the databases Art and Architecture Complete, Art Full Text or Art Index Retrospective, you’ll be happy to know that these are all now included in Art Source.

Art Source is available to Monash staff and students via the Databases page and through Search.

Be warned! Many people get Art Source confused with ARTStor. Both are excellent resources, but Art Source will give you top quality journal articles and art news, whereas ARTStor is an image library.

Art Source: your first stop for art, design and architecture research!
