Good places to start:
-The library has a lot of books on artists. Starting in a book might be the easiest thing to do for this project. Search the library catalog, or look in the 700's in the nonfiction section.
-If you're not sure what to look up (besides the artist's name), you may want to get some background knowledge. Read entries on Wikipedia or Britannica Online (use AEA password found at library desk). DO NOT USE THESE AS RESOURCES FOR YOUR PAPER. They are not considered scholarly resources for a paper at this level. They are, however, great ways to get an introduction to your topic to help you find search terms and narrow your focus. Never cite them, but use them to help you get started on your research.
