I need help finding resources for a paper on textile art.

This is for my ART330 class and I'm having trouble finding resources. My professor said to get in touch with the librarians for help.

Thanks for your call. This is a brief summary of the materials we located online together and that were emailed to you.

We used the discovery search method on the home page, looking for the natural language phrase "textile art" and learned from examining some of the results that we could also search using the following subject headings:

  • decorative arts
  • textile artists
  • textile design

A key resource for this project turned out to be the Oxford Art Online resource, located in both the "find an article" list and in the eBooks list under the link to Oxford Digital Reference Collection.

In addition, we found results in:

  • EBSCOhost All Reference Databases using the History Resource Center and Humanities International modules (found five articles on the topic here)
  • JSTOR database (located and sent six good articles here)
  • EBSCO eBooks and ProQuest eBrary had lots of booksl on the subject
  • Credo Reference eBooks (found Topic Pages for types of textile art, such as quilting, crochet, embroidery, tapestry, etc.)
