This guide supports Native North American Art (ARTH 340) students in researching native artists and collectives, using primarily electronic resources available through the EWU Libraries.
Below you will find 3 suggested steps for researching your artist/collective, with links to relevant resources and some directions and tips.
You will also find suggestions for evaluating your sources for reliability and credibility.
Please don't hesitate to be in touch with me to request assistance with research for this project. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org or message me through Canvas.
Best of luck with your assignment!
Rose Krause, Librarian for Art

**Please note that not all artists and collectives will have entries in Grove Art. If there is an entry on your artist/collective, then this is a great source of background information.**
Use the EWU Library catalog to locate electronic scholarly articles and books on your artist/collective.
Search by artist/collective name and limit to "Available online". This will allow you to see only content available online. Also use the Format facet to exclude Newspaper Articles and Reviews.
Please complete an evaluation in Survey Monkey that tells me what went well and didn't go well in these recorded sessions. The survey is anonymous and has nothing to do with your performance in this course.
