International Bibliography of Art (IBA, continues BHA)

Also known as: IBA

Access via: ProQuest

"The database will grow by 25,000 records per year, ensuring unbroken coverage of journals that were indexed in BHA and IBA prior to 2010. The initial data set created by the Getty Research Institute in 2008-2009 covers scholarship up to 2009, including retrospective records for material published in previous years, and in some cases the new ProQuest indexing will also cover retrospective years in order to fill gaps in coverage. Publications covered include at least 500 core journals, with an emphasis on specialist and rare titles that are not covered by other indexes, plus detailed coverage of monographs, essay collections, conference proceedings and exhibition catalogues. We aim for at least 60% of the content to be in languages other than English (primarily German, French, Italian and Spanish), with a proportion of this indexing provided by national art libraries and freelance indexers from around the world. This editorial policy will ensure an authoritative overview of international scholarship within the broad and interdisciplinary parameters outlined below. Subject coverage: European art since late antiquity; American art since the colonial period; Global art since 1945; Fine art in all media; Decorative arts and antiques; Museum studies and conservation; Archaeology and material culture; Folk art; Architectural history" -- publisher's website
