The International Bibliography of Art is the successor to the Bibliography of the History of Art and includes the most recent index records that were created by the Getty Research Institute as part of BHA. These records were created in 2008-2009, and cover scholarship up to 2009, including retrospective records for material published in previous years. ProQuest will be building on this by adding 25,000 new records per year going forwards, ensuring unbroken coverage of indexed journals.
The database includes detailed abstracts for all new content, in-depth abstracts for scholarly articles, and authority files of controlled terms. Together, these provide detailed, high quality records to direct researchers to the most important information in the field.
Ideal for academic and specialist art libraries, museums, and design firms, International Bibliography of Art provides authoritative coverage of international scholarship:
- European art from late antiquity to the present, American art from the colonial era to the present, and global art since 1945
- Visual arts in all media are covered: painting, sculpture, drawing, video, installations, new media, decorative and applied arts, museum studies and conservation, archaeology, folk art and material culture, classical studies, antiques, architectural history
- Strong international coverage
- At least 500 core journals will be covered, plus detailed coverage of monographs, essay collections, conference proceedings and exhibition catalogues.
