This database is both text and image although some works of art may not have an accompanying image. Approximately thirty percent of the images, due to copyright laws, are restricted for public use and cannot be accessed by the public subscriber. To compensate for this every effort is made to include, where possible, a bibliographic reference which will include a published image of the work and this can be consulted outside of the electronic resource. The range of subjects dealt with in the paper files is indicated by the thousands of Subject terms on this site, which are used to classify both the paper files and works in this database. It is important to remember that a number of these Subject Terms will not link to any works of art in this internet site but that works will be found in the paper files awaiting computerization. Trial ends September 30, 2016.
