Welcome to the Art education research guide!
This guide is to help you get a jumpstart on Art education research by giving an overview of what Art education resources are available in the Library, along with some quick tips on how to find and use them. While this guide was built in support of the SUU BFA in Art education, for certain topics, you may find our Education major guide useful as well.
Sherratt Library provides access to a number of databases on a wide range of subjects. Below is a list of databases with content related to Art Education:
Although many of the journals and annuals we have in Sherratt Library are available in electronic form, sometimes a print copy is the only way to go. Below is a list of periodicals and serials we have in print and electronic formats. (Note: Print copies of periodicals are housed in the collapsible shelves on the first level, organized alphabetically by title, where serials are in the book shelves, organized by call number, like books).
At Sherratt Library we use the Library of Congress Classification (LCC) system to organize the items on our shelves. These call "numbers" (they're really letters) on the spines are used for most of our items, including print books and ebooks. Below is a list of call numbers that relate to Art (browsing these sections in the shelves on the 2nd level, or 3rd level for oversized items, can reveal resources you never knew you needed)!
Click any of the links below to see a PDF of more complete breakdowns for each number at the Library of Congress. And remember, there are general items on education, instruction, teaching, and learning that may also include helpful information pertinent to Art education.
