History of Art 1B: Reading and Writing about Visual Experience: Home


Hi there! Welcome to the course guide for "History of Art R1B | Reading and Writing about Visual Experience: Indigenous and Colonial Mural Painting in Latin America." This LibGuide will provide you with resources that cover topics such as:

  • Starting your research
  • Finding scholarly articles, books, and media
  • How to properly cite the sources you've found

As you're researching, you may hit roadblocks or have questions. Schedule a virtual research consultation with Berkeley librarians, or use our 24/7 chat reference service for help as you go.

Other helpful research guides for your class: Art History Guide and the databases section of the Latin American Studies Guide.

Off-campus Access to Library Resources

There are two ways to connect to library resources from off-campus:

  1. Links to online resources on library websites, such as OskiCat, will allow you to login with CalNet directly.
  2. To access library resources found via non-UCB sites, such as Google or Google Scholar, you can add the EZproxy bookmarklet to your browser. Then, whenever you land on a licensed library resource, select your EZproxy bookmarklet to enable CalNet login.
  3. If you've found a resource on the open web, stick the entire URL into this quick link checker; it should convert general web links to Berkeley-specific URLs, so that you can access them.

More information is on the EZproxy guide.

The campus VPN provides an alternate method for off-campus access.
