How to efficiently find quality information about Buddhism, and get books, articles, images & video, and sacred texts,



ARTstor (Harvard Login) searches more than one million digital images in the arts, architecture, humanities, and sciences from museums, libraries, and archives, including Harvard.

Hint: Use buddhis* (with the asterisk) to search both Buddhism and Buddhist.

Hint: Add a country or regional name to your search.

Hint: See especially the Rob Linrothe Collection of Tibetan and Buddhist Art (Harvard Login) and the Carl Strom and Jennifer Strom Collection of Korean Buddhist Monasteries Art (Harvard Login)

Hint: See how Artstor can be used in the classroom under "Teach with Artstor."
