While using Summon and EBSCO from the home page are good ways to start research, the library subscribes to subject-specific databases for art, architecture, music and history that can be helpful to search individually also.
Searching by subject is a good way to uncover sources on very specific or esoteric topics.
In the BGSU or OhioLINK library catalogs, you will find subject headings at the bottom of the full record for a book.
In EBSCO, you will find subject headings beneath the citations in the results of your searches.
Mix & match the following Library of Congress subject headings to find books and articles about art, architecture and music in Renaissance Bohemia (Czech Republic) and Northern Europe. Because different sources will use some terms and not others, it is useful to combine terms in as many ways as you can think of in order to be as comprehensive as possible in your searching.
|Geographical term||Content term/Time period term|
|Czech Republic||Art, Renaissance|
|History; History -- 16th century; History -- 17th century;
History -- 1403-1526; History -- 1526-1618;
