Finding Articles

The CCSF Libraries provides free access to newspaper, magazine and journal article databases.  Use these databases for specialized and the most up-to-date information, especially academic (scholarly) sources that are not available for free on the Web. See the Articles & Databases page for a full list of databases available.

Recommended Databases

At the Public Library

San Francisco Public Library offers access to several excellent databases on art and art history.

  • Art Full Text, a database with full text, scholarly articles exclusively about the arts.
  • Oxford Art Online is the most updated version of the art history multi-volume standard reference source: The Dictionary of Art. We also have it in book form in the reference section at the Rosenberg Library - look for it on the 4th floor.

You will need a San Francisco Public Library card and your pin number for the card to access these databases. Go to SFPL's list of Art & Music Databases and explore these amazing resources!
