To begin searching the vast resources of the AIC online databases, users will click on the “Libraries” tab and go to the “Information for Researchers” link located in the navigation bar on the left-hand side of the webpage. There, you will be given the key that will open the door to the online resources offered by the AIC website. Worth checking out are:

  • http://www.artcyclopedia.com/, Artcyclopedia, a comprehensive index of every artist represented at hundreds of museum sites, image archives, and other online resources.
  • http://lumiere.lib.vt.edu/iawa_db/, Biographies of women in architecture, International Archive of Women in Architecture
  • http://witcombe.sbc.edu/ARTHLinks.html, Art History on the Web, where visitors have access to all things related to art: the artists, the movements, from Prehistoric period to contemporary.

The Library Resources link is also worth a browse. Visitors should check out the Mary Reynolds Collection: Surrealism and its Affinities link http://www.artic.edu/reynolds/ . The Mary Louise Reynolds Collection website is the gateway to a journey through the surrealist art movement including links to artists, exhibits, and other information suitable for research and general information needs.

For the variety of information and links to other art-related online resources, I recommend that the Art Institute of Chicago http://www.artic.edu/aic/ website be included as a bookmark under your favorites!
