Description: The Getty provides free access to the Bibliography of the History of Art (BHA) and to the Repertoire de la litterature de l'art (RILA), which are combined in the BHA/RILA database. These citation databases index European and American visual arts material published between 1975 and 2007. The BHA/RILA database offers both basic and advanced search modules, and can be searched by subject, artist, author, article title, journal title, and several other elements.

About RILA and BHA:

  • RILA covers the years 1975?1989. It was produced at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute. In 1982 Getty began to support RILA, and in 1990 the Getty began to collaborate with INIST-CNRS to produce the BHA, which was a merger of RILA and the Repertoire d'art et d'archeologie.
  • BHA includes articles from over 1,200 journals. BHA includes all articles within its subject scope regardless of the subject focus of a particular journal. Thus, many of the journals on this list are covered partially, as only some of their articles are within BHA's scope.

Use the Locate Journal Titles option to check if the Libraries have access to a particular journal's full text (online or print); for books, exhibition catalogs or reports, check the UMSL Library Catalog under the book/exhibition catalog/report's title or author. If UMSL does not own the material, please consider using UMSL's Interlibrary Loan service (available for current UMSL students, faculty & staff members).
