Searching DAC Resources
There are three ways to search online for DAC resources.
Search for information about art objects in the DAC collection
Descriptive cataloging information about objects in the DAC collection is searchable via DAC Collection Search online, which also offers zoomable, high-resolution digital images of museum objects which have been photographed to date as part of ongoing digital imaging work.
Search for book holdings in the DAC Print Reference Library
All books and periodicals in the DAC Print Reference Library are cataloged in the Wesleyan Library catalog online. To limit your search there to Print Reference Library holdings, specify "Davison Art Center Print Reference" from the "Location" popup on the search page.

Search here to find general DAC web pages that contain all requested terms.
Tips for using the box above:
- Capitalization doesn't matter: searches for Rembrandt and rembrandt yield the same results
- Diacritics don't matter: a search for Dürer or Durer finds "Dürer"
- Quotation marks limit a search to a phrase: a search for "wood engraving" omits pages that have those two words but not in that precise order
- "-" before a term omits pages that contain it: a search for etching -Goya finds pages that have the word "etching" but not those that also have "Goya"
General searches of the DAC website are performed by Google search as above.
