a. Wilson Art Fulltext

Wilson Art Fulltext (http://uclibs.org/PID/33002), is an upgrade to Art Index, a systemwide centrally-funded database (SCAP fund).

Art Fulltext was a high priority for UC art selectors.  CDL wishes to thank Susan Malkoff Moon of the Arts Library at UCSB for her valuable time and insights during the evaluation period.

Art Fulltext offers full text of 111 publications back to 1997 plus abstracts and indexing of an international array of 378 peer-selected publications back to 1984, now with expanded coverage of Latin American, Canadian, Asian and other non-Western art, new artists, contemporary art, exhibition reviews, and feminist criticism.  Features include: subject thesaurus, indexing of art reproductions, and links to websites.  The list of titles can be found at http://www.hwwilson.com/databases/artindex.htm.  However, as an aggregator, Wilson does not have perpetual rights for the material.

Art Fulltext recently added an additional 51 journals that significantly broaden its coverage.  Emerging areas of art research are also expanded, including non-western art, contemporary art, feminist art criticism, crafts, costume, and textiles.  Traditional areas of art research–archaeology, architecture, and art history–will receive broader coverage through the addition of these important new titles.
