EBSCO Publishing Releases Art Source™ - The Definitive Source for Art and Architecture Information

from EBSCO:

EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) has released the definitive full-text resource for the study of art and architecture, Art Source™. Developed from a merger of high-quality databases from EBSCO Publishing and H.W. Wilson, Art Source covers a broad range of subjects from fine, decorative and commercial art to various areas of architecture and architectural design.

Art Source includes full text for over 600 high-quality journals and 230 books. The database also offers podcasts from leading museums on artists and individual works of art, an image collection of over 63,000 images, art reproduction records and provides strong international coverage including periodicals published in French, German, Spanish and Dutch.

The database was designed for use by a diverse audience including art scholars, artists, designers, students and general researchers. Art Source will appeal to each of these audience members due to the breadth of specific subjects including:

  • Advertising Art
  • Antiques
  • Archaeology
  • Architecture and Architectural History
  • Art History
  • Contemporary Art
  • Costume Design
  • Crafts
  • Decorative Arts
  • Folk Art
  • Graphic Arts
  • Industrial Design
  • Interior Design
  • Landscape Architecture
  • Motion Pictures
  • Museology
  • Non-Western Art
  • Painting
  • Photography
  • Pottery
  • Printmaking
  • Sculpture
  • Television
  • Textiles
  • Video

Art Source is a combination of all the A&I and full-text records in H.W. Wilson's Art Full Text and Art Index Retrospective: 1929-1984. In addition there is all the unique A&I and full-text content from Art and Architecture Complete™, plus an additional 100 full text titles not available on any other EBSCOhost® database.

EBSCO and H.W. Wilson merged in 2011 in what was viewed by the companies as an ideal match. The acquisition led directly to heightening the value and quality of EBSCO and Wilson resources as well as the creation of a line of source products, including Art Source. EBSCO has released additional source products focusing on specific subject matter over the past few months.
