Humanities Databases

As an art history student or scholar, your line of critical inquiry is likely rooted in other topics that expand the scope of visual arts content. Sometimes you need to research on a topic like climate change or environmental issues, gender studies, critical theory, etc. UCI Libraries curates many other Research Guides which point you to discipline-specific databases, since we have so many! You can also browse on  A-Z Database Page, which lists all of UCI's currently subscribed or freely available databases across all areas of study. The databases listed on this page primarily cover humanities topics.
