How to Find Images:
Your Number 1 electronic source is ARTstor, found in the library’s Online Resouces:

· If there are pages of results, try being more specific (Michael Lucero AND Dreamer).
· Click on the title or creator’s name for more information.
· Click on the photo to enlarge.
Click on the Electronic Reference Sources tab above for more help with ARTstor.
Oxford Art Online is also good:
· On the front screen, select the Oxford Art Reference tools you wish to search, or search all.
· Try typing Lucie Rie in the box. Click in the box next to the word 'Images' to limit your search to images.

Refine your searches with Boolean Limiters:
AND – joins two concepts: hits must contain both words: Munich AND Art.
OR – hits can contain either word, and your hitlist will be much larger: Painting OR Sculpture. This kind of search is helpful if you are aware of synonyms: Photograph or Image.
NOT – hits will have the first but not the second term: Munich NOT Pretzel.
