When conducting art law research, you may encounter unknown art-related terms and concepts, particularly if you do not have an arts background. Numerous art dictionaries, encyclopedias, and similar sources are available that explain and define these terms and concepts and also often contain images of artworks.
Many more resources are available in print at the Lauinger Library on main campus. To identify art encyclopedias and dictionaries, start by searching George (main campus library catalog) by subject for "art dictionaries" or "art encyclopedias" or see Lauinger's Art, Art History & Museum Studies guide.
