    Welcome to the library course guide page for ArtHist 190A: Venice: Art, History, Environment.

    This guide is intended to help you in your class work. In the database pages, I have suggested both general and art-specific databases which may have articles relating to your research. It is not, of course, exhaustive.

    If you'd like an individual research consultation on your paper topic, please contact me and we'll set up a time to meet.

    If you've reviewed all the presentations in the "Library research help," I drive home a few key points here.
