    Renaissance Artist Research Guide

    A new  Renaissance Artist Research Guide has been created for the current Fifth Form Humanities project. Consider using this guide to identify helpful reference materials, catalog searches, art images and journal articles.  A permanent link to the guide can be found in the sidebar menu under Research > Research Guides > Renaissance Art. The library is now using a research guide format called LibGuides.  The LibGuides software presents a customizable, instantly up-datable, tabbed, clean interface.  Soon, all of the library research guides will be formatted in this manner.  We like it and hope you do too!  Please send your comments/thoughts on LibGuides to: lsanborn at sps dot edu.
