Using Franklin Catalog

TIP If you have the name of an artist or art movement that is two or more words, such as George Platt Lynes or Queer Art, search for it in quotation marks as "queer art" or "George Platt Lynes." This will keep the words together as a phrase. Works in Google and Google Scholar, too!

TIP When you find a book relevant to your research, use the linked subject headings to find more sources. For example, the book Art & Queer Culture has the subjects Homosexuality in Art, Homosexuality and Art, Gay Artists, and Lesbian Artists, among others.
