Welcome to the Erickson Library's Art subject guide. You'll find tabs at the top that will lead you to additional information about print and online resources. We include links to a variety of resources such as encylopedias, newspapers, books, articles, databases, videos, websites and more. 

We now offer a curbside pickup service. To use this service, place a hold on an item (on the library website) and when you receive the notification that the item is ready to be picked up, call the library to arrange a curbside pickup.

The Erickson Library is here to help you find credible and reliable information. Please feel free to call or email with any of your reserach questions!
