Art History & Visual Arts: Articles

art theory and practice


Art Source provides access to full text articles as well as an art image collection.

Most of the listed databases provide full text, but many also contain abstracts and bibliographic references.

If the full-text of the article is not available from the database, make a note of the bibliographic reference and then use Find e-journals to see if the journal that the article was published in is available in electronic format in one of our other databases. Should the journal not be available electronically, use the library catalogue to request the article.

Subject & Image databases

Full text articles and references to articles on particular topics may be found using the subject databases.

Use Google Scholar with settings adjustments for Unisa resources across all databases
