Welcome to the first installment of a new series here on the Ingalls blog. In keeping with our commitment to providing first-class research materials, the library continues to expand its collection of electronic journals, accessible via the E-journals A-Z list on the library’s homepage. Each month I will be highlighting electronic journals that are either an integral part of our collection and therefore should not missed, or are just plain interesting or fun. We begin with the letter A.
For general research purposes Art Bulletin and Art Journal, both published by the College Art Association, are absolute must-haves for any art library collection. These journals recently became available in electronic format for the first time. Avid readers take note: the most recent issues are often made available electronically before the print version reaches the library. Art History, the journal of the Association of Art Historians, is also an invaluable research tool, and the library’s subscription includes not only access to the bimonthly journal but also special issues published by Art History over the past decade.
For those with a narrower focus we have several journals in the A category dedicated to African and Medieval art. Check out African Arts and the African Archaeological Review for the most current, peer-reviewed research or, for those admirers of the museum’s fabulous Armor Court, read the latest issue of Arms and Armour, published by the Royal Armouries, the UK’s national museum of arms and armour.
There are currently over 130 journals in the A alone and although I could go on and on, sadly room on this blog is limited. Check out the big list online, and I’ll see you next month for a visit to the letter B!
