In addition to the resources listed on this page and on the Find Images page, staff in the History of Art department compiled this helpful guide to online resources in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and the increase in people studying remotely.
This is an informal, working document, and you are welcome to add comments to help keep it up-to-date. We hope to integrate the information in this guide with the resources listed on the Subject Guide at some point in the coming months.
Here is a selection of the electronic journal packages that provide access to the full text of articles most relevant for History of Art. Remember to look at the History Subject Guide under Further History Resources for online collections of journals published in the 18th and 19th centuries.
Please ask for help if you cannot find what you need.

The following collections of newspapers are available online and can be useful for reviews of exhibitions:
