Why Books?

Question: What value lies in books?  Why, for example, would a researcher choose a book over a journal?

Answer: Books remain a principle source type for research in art, architecture, and design. Much of the content needed for these topics only exist in the printed book. This is due, in part, to the image content. Important book sources for art research include exhibition catalogs and catalog raissone.
