Welcome to the Italian Renaissance Art Research Guide at Buley Library!
Unlike Google, the library and scholarly databases cannot understand sentences or natural language, therefore you will need to break down your topic into keywords. These keywords may include topic words, place/location names, dates or time periods, etc. Define your topic as clearly and as completely as possible. Write down the main concepts as keywords, and then write down some synonyms for these keywords.
SouthernSearch is the shared library catalog for SCSU and the CT State Colleges and Universities (CSCU). Use the search box and the center pull-down menu to select books and collections at SCSU, CT State Colleges and Universities, and to find research materials such as books, ebooks, articles, and course reserve materials. Use the limiters on the left to focus your search.
To locate a print book on the shelf in Buley Library, take note of the location of the book and the call number.
