Step 2a: Bibliography: Textbook
DUE: T Sept.14 25% of Bibliography grade

Now that you have chosen a painting, it is time to begin learning more about its artist. In this assignment you will find references listed in your textbook.

Find and read the section(s) of your textbook where your artist is discussed. Consult the extensive bibliography at the back of the book, and from it compile a list of books and articles specifically on your artist, or that seem like they might pertain to your work. Do not list items from “Films and Videos.”

In addition to the section on your artist, also consult the bibliography for the chapter(s) where your artist is discussed.

Alphabetize this bibliography by author’s last name, and format it to the Chicago/Turabian style (guidelines on BB).

Search Aladin for a consortium library that has each book on your bibliography; give priority to the MU library. List the library and the call number at that library at the end of the citation (in parentheses). If Aladin does not have the book, consult either the Library of Congress (www.loc.gov → Library Catalogues) or the National Gallery of Art reference library (www.nga.gov → Resources → Art Research Library); list the call number from those institutions as well.

Format:

• Your name, the class ID number and name, the title of the assignment, and the date should be single-spaced, and should appear at the upper left of the first page.
• The bibliography should be single-spaced, with a second line break between each citation.
• The bibliography should be alphabetized by the author’s last name.
• Books by the same author should appear in the following order: books authored individually (alphabetized by title), books edited, books authored/edited in collaboration.
• Books with multiple authors should follow the order given by the library collection database.
• Subsequent references to the same author(s) should use a “3-em dash,” a .5”
underlined space with a period. Do not use the “3-em dash” for any author in the first reference to a collaborative work.

Step 2b: Continue Research & Bibliography Grove’s Dictionary of Art
DUE: F Sept.17
25% of Bibliography grade

Continue learning about your artist by consulting a specialized, scholarly encyclopedia for art history, Grove’s Dictionary of Art.

First, find and read the entry on your artist in Grove’s Dictionary of Art; this encyclopedia is available on-line via the MU Library website (instructions on BB); the MU library also has a printed version. Compile a list of books and articles from the bibliography that accompanies the entry, formatted to the Chicago/Turabian style. You may omit any books or articles in foreign languages. If an entry repeats from the textbook bibliography, list it again.

Use Aladin to find a local copy of each book or article, as before; consult the Library of Congress or the National Gallery of Art Research Library if Aladin does not have it. (Be sure to search for journal articles by the name of the journal.) List the call number from the institution that does have the book or article, giving priority to the MU library.

Format:

• Your name, the class ID number and name, the title of the assignment, and the date should be single-spaced, and should appear at the upper left of the first page.
• The bibliography should begin with information on the entry in Grove’s, in this format:
Author, “Entry Title.” In Grove Art Online. http://www.oxfordartonline.com.proxymu.wrlc.org.
• The rest of the bibliography should be alphabetized by the author’s last name.
• The bibliography should be single-spaced, with a second line break between each citation.
• Books by the same author should appear in the following order: books authored individually (alphabetized by title), books edited, books authored/edited in collaboration.
• Books with multiple authors should follow the order given by Grove’s Dictionary of Art.
• Subsequent references to the same author(s) should use a “3-em dash.” Do not use the “3-em dash” for any author in the first reference to a collaborative work.

Step 2c: Bibliography: National Gallery of Art website
DUE: T Sept.21 25% of Bibliography grade

Continue compiling a bibliography by consulting the National Gallery of Art website.

From the main page of the website (www.nga.gov), click on “The Collection” then begin to type your artist’s name in the “Artist’s Last Name” box, and choose the correct name from the pop-up list. Choose your painting from the list of works; printed, scholarly sources are listed under the link “Bibliography.”

Compile a list of books and articles from this list, formatted to the Chicago/Turabian style. You may omit any books or articles in foreign languages. If an entry repeats from the earlier bibliographies, list it again.

Format:

• Your name, the class ID number and name, the title of the assignment, and the date should be single-spaced, and should appear at the upper left of the first page.
• The bibliography should be alphabetized by the author’s last name.
• The bibliography should be single-spaced, with a second line break between each citation.
• Books by the same author should appear in the following order: books authored individually (alphabetized by title), books edited, books authored/edited in collaboration.
• Books with multiple authors should follow the order given by the NGA.
• Subsequent references to the same author(s) should use a “3-em dash.” Do not use the “3-em dash” for any author in the first reference to a collaborative work.

Step 2d: Bibliography MU library resources
DUE: xx 10% of paper grade

The next step is to compile a fourth and longer bibliography using sources available to you through the Marymount Library website (www.marymount.edu/lls).

1. The ALADIN catalogue
The ALADIN catalogue on the MU library website lists books in the MU library, as well as books in the other consortium libraries. Use this database to find books in the following categories:

A. A book on art from your artist’s particular period and region.
Be sure to be precise; this will take some careful thought on your part.
Do not list general surveys of art from prehistoric to modern. Such books are good places to get your bearings, but they are not what you should rely upon for college-level research.

B. A book on the history or culture of your artist’s particular period.
Art history seeks to explain pictures within an historical context; as such it is an interdisciplinary field. Therefore you should be conducting research on different aspects of the particular culture from which the work came.

C. A catalogue of the National Gallery of Art’s permanent collection that focuses on your artist’s particular period.
Museum curators produce scholarly catalogues of their own permanent collection of works, which are an excellent source of information. Some are organized by region and period (e.g. nineteenth-century French painting); others are organized by the collector who donated the work to the museum (e.g. the Kress Collection).

D. A catalogue for a temporary museum exhibition that relates to your artist’s works.
Museum curators also produce scholarly catalogues when they host a temporary exhibition of works loaned by other museums. Find one such catalogue for a temporary exhibition that relates to your artist’s works; this exhibition need not have been hosted by the NGA.

E. A text that focuses exclusively on your artist.
This is pretty self explanatory.
List at least one book from each category. List a consortium library that has the book, and the call number there; give priority to MU library holdings.

2. Art Index
The Art Index is a database on the MU library website that lists essays in a range of scholarly journals. Look for essays relevant to your study, as in #1, above. (Directions on using Art Index are on BB.) After you find the essays, use ALADIN to find which Consortium library has the journal (search by journal title); again give priority to MU library holdings.

3. JStor
JStor is a database on the MU library website with PDF versions of essays in scholarly journals. Look for essays relevant to your study, as in #1, above.
All listed by JStor are also available in print; you should list them in the same way you would the printed version (as in part 2); do not list the database website information.

Format:

• Your name, the class ID number and name, the title of the assignment, and the date should be single-spaced, and should appear at the upper left of the first page.
• The bibliography should be alphabetized by the author’s last name.
• The bibliography should be single-spaced, with a second line break between each citation.
• Books by the same author should appear in the following order: books authored individually (alphabetized by title), books edited, books authored/edited in collaboration.
• Books with multiple authors should follow the order given by the NGA.
• Subsequent references to the same author(s) should use a “3-em dash.” Do not use the “3-em dash” for any author in the first reference to a collaborative work.

NOTE: Give priority to new citations; if there are indeed none (be thorough & diligent), then may repeat from earlier bibliographies.
