This Library Research Guide is intended as a starting place for UCLA researchers, pointing to resources and strategies for finding information about fashion, costume, and related topics.

UCLA students, faculty, and staff can also access these sites from off-campus using either the Proxy Server (a simple setting in your browser) or the VPN Client (a program you install on your computer).

Art and Design Periodical Indexes

Note that some of these sources only index journal articles. Use the gold UC-eLinks button to do an automated search to find the full text, or search for the journal title in the UCLA Library Catalog. General advice on using databases can be found in Choosing and Using Library Databases.
