Overview

The definitive resource for scholarly literature on western art

International Bibliography of Art is the successor to the Bibliography of the History of Art (BHA).

International Bibliography of Art now benefits from ProQuest’s acclaimed editorial operations, with its emphasis on subject expertise and manual indexing. The database includes detailed abstracts for all new content, in-depth abstracts for scholarly articles, and authority files of controlled terms. Together, these provide detailed, high quality records to direct researchers to most important information in the field.

Ideal for academic and specialist art libraries, museums, and design firms, International Bibliography of Art provides authoritative coverage of international scholarship:
