  • Want to spend some time talking about primary sources since may be a little diff than what normally focus on.
  • Just SAMPLING of resources available. Highlights some of the “big ones.” Some will work better for certain artists than others. For example, National Archives works really well for Dorothea Lange as opposed to some of the other artists chosen.
  • Their archives have vertical files on all the chosen artists. Vertical files may contain things like clippings, pamphlets, catalogs, photographs,reprints, and other miscellaneous materials relating to artist. Can see two of the artists have works in the museum’s collection. Need to make appointment.
  • Can see variety of results with search for Romaine Brooks. Includes microfilm and original papers. Need to make appointment.
  • Romaine Brooks Papers incl. letters, notebooks, photos of paintings, taped interview, exhibition catalogs
  • Will work better for some artists than others. For example, lots of information on Dorothea Lange because of work the government programs. Suggest read “How to Search” and check out “Search Options” for ways to limit search.
  • Photographer: Dorothea Lange. Held in Prints & Photographs Division @ LOC. Just need to get library card. Infoguide about doing research @ LOC: http://infoguides.gmu.edu/loc
  • Worthwhile to check out publications outside the US for primary sources. From “The Times” of London.
  • Usually think of JSTOR as source for scholarly journals—scholarly criticism, BUT can be great source for contemporary articles. Since dates go back to first issue of a journal, several journals dating back to 19th century in JSTOR.
