Bibliography of the History of Art

Times are tough, even for the some of the most important institutes in the world. For several years, the J. Paul Getty Trust has published the famous Bibliography of the History of Art (BHA), and many libraries have subscribed to it.

The problems in the economy were shared by BHA, and the Getty tried to find other partners to continue it. They ran into complications, and decided to make it available in an open manner so now everyone can use it. Currently, the database consists of BHA (covering 1990-2007) and the International Bibliography of Art (IBA), covering the years 2008 and part of 2009. Soon, there will also be the RĂ©pertoire de la litterature de l'art (RILA), one of the predecessors of BHA, with records that cover 1975–1989.

You can access this database through the AUR Databases page, which you can access from the main page of the catalog.

Please note that this database does not contain full-text sources!

This is an index, which provides summaries for the articles in different journals and books. If you want a specific article you find in BHA, you must still get it. If you need help with this
