Question: What value lies in books? Why, for example, would a researcher choose a book over a journal?
Answer: Because of their length, books tend to provide more comprehensive treatment of a topic. Books can also be useful for providing footnotes to additional materials. Important book sources for art research include exhibition catalogs and catalog raissone.
The Art books in Paley are located on the 3rd floor. My office is right in front of the Print Media and Decorative Arts section (Room 317). Stop by while you're browsing through the collection!
