How To Find Images In The Library

Here are some clues to help you use the library catalog (LINUS) to find books with images in the library:

  • Include the phrase “pictorial works” in your keyword search.
    Example: Bible AND “pictorial works”. Or “Vietnam War” AND “pictorial works”.

  • Include the word “exhibitions” in your keyword search. (This works best when looking for images from a specific artist or movement in art history.)
    Example: Kandinsky AND exhibitions. Or impressionism AND exhibitions.
  • Do a subject search to find indexes of paintings, illustrations, sculptures, or photographs in print.
    Example: subject search for “painting—indexes”. Or “pictures—indexes.” Or “photographs—indexes
  • Do a subject search using the phrase “in art” following the subject you wish to find imagery of.
    Example: death in art, dogs in art
