Getty Research Institute BHA and RILA 1975-2007

The Getty provides free access to indexes covering art history literature from 1975 to 2007

Art and Art History historical indexing:

  • Répertoire d’Art et d’Archéologie (RAA) 1910-1972 - no public online access
  • Répertoire international de la littérature de l'art (RILA) 1975-1989 - free access through Getty BHA-RILA
  • Bibliography of the History of Art (BHA) 1990-2007 - free access through Getty BHA-RILA
  • International Bibliography of Art (IBA) 2007 and after - WSU does not have access to this subsequent subscription-only index

RILA was produced at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute.  In 1990 the Getty began to collaborate with INIST-CNRS to produce BHA, a merger of RILA and the Répertoire d'art et d'archéologie.  The BHA covers 1,200 journals indexing only those articles within the scope of art and art history. (See list

Google Scholar

Google    Scholar

Ratchet-up the quality of your Google search.  Search Google Scholar to find journal articles and other research papers.  Google Scholar may offer you a link to the paper -- but it is more likely to point to a publisher - who will ask you to pay.  The WSU libraries may be able to get you the paper you need.

Use the Settings option:

Tip #1: Add the OhioLINK "library link" to integrate WSU access options into your results.

Tip#2: If you are off-campus and see a reCAPTCHA error message "invalid domain for site key," go directly to google scholar; open the menu; choose Settings; Library Links; find and select "Wright State University - Full Text - Wright State."

Encyclopedia: Oxford Art Online

Oxford Art Online is a database that has the full text for several good-quality art encyclopedias, including the scholarly Grove Dictionary of Art.  A great place to get an overview of an artist or method.
