HISTART R1B: Art Work: Authorship and Ownership

Art History/Classics Library

image of art history journal coverThe Art History/Classics Library is located on the third floor of Doe Library (directly above the second-floor reference desk). It is primarily a graduate-level collection, and books cannot be checked out; however, as an undergraduate you can use the library if the book you need is not located anywhere else on campus. You will need to show your UCB ID at the front desk and fill out a form for a one-day pass. Books owned by the Art History/Classics Library can be found in OskiCat.

Their website is a useful resource for all kinds of art-related information and research guides. Their hours during the regular school year are 9-9 Mon-Thurs, 9-5 Fri, and 1-7pm on Sundays.

Printing and Scanning in the Libraries

All libraries on campus are equipped with "bookscan stations," which allow you to:

  • scan documents and save them to a USB drive, or
  • scan documents and then send them to a printer.  You cannot email a scanned document from a bookscan station.

Scanning to a USB drive is free.  Moffitt Copy Center sells flash drives.

Scanning documents to print is 8 cents a page (color printing: 60 cents a page).picture of open book

In order to send documents to the printer from any of the public computers in the libraries, you must have the following:

  • A document that's on the Web or attached to your email (the public computers in the libraries will not open files from a USB or other drive)
  • A Cal 1 Card, with money loaded onto the debit account (go here to make a deposit to your Cal 1 Card account).  
    This is not the same as meal plan points! Your Cal 1 Card debit account is a separate fund on your card.

Beyond the Web

"It's all free on the Internet, right? Why should I go through the library's website to find sources for my paper?"

Library logo

The Web is a great source for free, publicly available information. However, the Library pays for thousands of electronic books, journals, and other information resources that are available only to the campus community. Through the Library website, you can access hundreds of different licensed databases containing journal articles, electronic books, maps, images, government and legal information, current and historical newspapers, digitized primary sources, and more. 

You access these resources through the Internet, using a browser like Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer -- but these databases are not part of the free, public Web. Resources like Lexis-Nexis, Web of Science, Academic Search Complete, and ARTstor are "invisible" to Google. You will not see results from most library databases in the results of a Google search.
