Writing About Art
This guide will help you find resources for your assignment in which you research a work fo art from the Ackland Art Museum and explore the mythological or relgious meanings of the work.
Images of some of the objects in the Ackland study gallery are available through the Ackland website.
Here are a few criteria that you could consider in order to determine whether or not an article, book, or website is of a quality worthy of inclusion in your research assignment (e.g., paper, presentation, etc.).
Find Background Info
Find Books & other sources (UNC Libraries' catalog)
It's advised that you locate broader information related to your topic before finding articles that may be much more narrowly focused. Use the Library's catalog to locate books. Once you find books on your topic, remember to refer to the bibliographies you find in books for additional sources (articles, books, etc.).
