Art Full Text, Art Index Retrospective & image databases will have new platform for searching

Posted 02.17.12 by Katherine Cowan

Many of the Decker Library's most heavily used art databases that were formerly provided by H.W. Wilson on the WilsonWeb platform have switched to a different vendor -- EBSCO -- and will now be accessed on the EBSCOhost platform. Affected databases include:

Journal databases
Art Full Text
Art Index Retrospective
Readers' Guide Full Text Select

Image databases
Art Museum Image Gallery
Cinema Image Gallery

The same content will be available, and the search process will be comparable for journal and image resources. The same options will be available for delivery of full-text content. If you are familiar with the interface for Academic Search Premier (which is on the EBSCOhost platform), you will now be searching Art Full Text (and the others listed above) through that interface. EBSCOhost has provided information to assist researchers in making this transition.
