ARTS 1323: Three Dimensional Design

An online guide to core library resources


This guide is designed to assist you with your research. Let me know if you need help. My contact information is to the right below. I regularly provide in-person research consultations. I often aid drop-in visitors at their point of need, but an appointment will ensure that we meet. And remember to visit the Fine Arts Library—the friendly little library with the 1950s vibe—to browse and check out our fine collection of books and journals.

Boolean Logic / Connectors

Connectors—Use "and" or "or" to specify multiple words in any field when searching a database or catalog. Use "not" to exclude words. Be careful with the latter; you may exclude important results because of an unexpected occurrence of the term in the excluded record(s). Some database use "and not" in place of "not."

Examples of Boolean logic:

  • art and gender [both terms must be present]
  • art or history [either term must be present]
  • art not sculpture [the first term must be present without the second term]
