This research guide is divided into two sections. One section presents online and printed bibliographies, indexes, and other reference works and surveys organized according to subject or artistic medium (e.g. Architecture; Arts of the Book; Ceramics; Metalwork; Museums and Collections, etc.). A separate section presents research tools organized according to geographic or cultural region (e.g. works on the art and architecture of Central Asia; South Asia; Iran; Egypt; Islamic Spain, etc.). Many of the reference works listed here are in the Fine Arts Library, shelved in the reading room [RFA call nos.] or in the stacks [FAL-LC, FA, and Fogg call nos.].
