  • Good afternoon, and thank you for coming to Watson Library’s class, Online Resources for Asian Art Research. My name is Jennie Pu and this is my colleague, Min Xu. If you haven’t signed in already, please do so before you leave. There is also a one page handout available. Our class will look at various e-resources for researching Asian Art history. Our focus will be on Chinese and Japanese art .  We will cover full-text journal databases, image databases, important online reference tools and free web resources.  Most of the resources are in English, with a few foreign language databases included.  Reading comprehension of Chinese or Japanese is helpful, but not required.
