Reference Books

    Reference books are a great way to start your research. Reference sources provide you with the necessary background information to give you a fundamental understanding of your artist and the context surrounding this individual's work.

    Use the gold Library of Congress classification sheet to find reference books. Or use the library's catalog and limit results to "Reference Sources."
