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.
