Starting Your Project - Research

It can be intimidating to use the library and start a research project, but fear not we (the librarians and your professor) are here every step of the way.

  • It helps to start by writing a list of terms that you will use in your search.
  • Keep notes as you research, the terms you used, where you searched, what you found.
  • Once you have some terms do some background research to add more terms to your list.
  • Now you have a bit more information on your topic start looking for more in depth information.
  • Search for books, use the bibliography to find even more books or articles.
  • Use library databases to search for articles.

Background Information

These sources will get you started with your research.  They will help you find background information on your artist, provide definitions, and discussions of concepts and techniques.

Library Catalog

To find books (and more!) use DePauw's Discovery search. It will also search materials owned by libraries all over the world.
