Photography Research

A research guide created for students in the photography program at Lesley University's College of Art & Design.

Research

This guide is intended to help Photography students find resources and boost their research skillz. Here are some other guides you might find useful!

Art & Design Research Guide: For in-depth research help, including tips and tools
Visual Media Guide: For resources to help with finding, citing, and legally using visual media
Professional Resources Guide: For professional resources, like help finding jobs and writing an artist's statement


When doing research, try starting with @LL Search, it searches everything @ Lesley Library, including journal databases, book catalogs, eBook libraries, encyclopedia entries, newspaper articles, and streaming media!

Advanced Search

Are you looking to place a hold on a book from another Boston-area library? Are you only looking for books, and you want to limit your search to one Lesley library? You can still do that in our FLO catalog!

Technique

Search Youtube for technique tutorials, like the Wex Photography channel, with featured artist series.
You can also search for specific techniques or computer programs online and add terms like "professional" or "advanced" so that you aren't getting advice for amateur photographers.

Search all the library resources in one place (search box at the top of the page). You'll even find eBooks you can read anywhere, like this one:
