Arts and Culture

This guide gives an overview of recommended sources for arts and culture.

This guide gives you an overview of recommended resources for Arts and Culture Studies: databases to find literature and primary sources; reference works to orientate on a particular topic and to find background information, and research skills literature.

Bear in mind that Arts and Culture Studies are multidisciplinary. You should therefore also consult resources from the fields of SociologyEconomicsManagement, Media and Communication or Psychology if your research topic relates to any of these fields.
