Individualized Research Consultations for Art History

Instructions for Art History students

Scheduling a Research Consultation

Students enrolled in either Seminar for Art History (ART 461) or Reading and Research in Art History (ART 493) are expected to schedule a research consultation with the Librarian for Art. Consultations are excellent opportunities to develop your topic with a research expert in order to discuss such areas as: posing a researchable question, advanced search techniques, source evaluation, locating and requesting materials outside of the Adams Library, citation management, and so much more. 


Please contact Amy Barlow, Librarian for Art, to set-up an appointment for research consultation. In your email to Amy, please include the following information:

  • Name of course
  • Your research topic as you currently understand it (up to 200 words)
  • Links to image of art object(s) if available
  • Specific questions you may have about your research and/or attachments of previous related work on the topic if available
  • Availability, including nights 


Consultations can be hosted on zoom or in person.
