AH225 Arts of Asia [Feng]

Boston University Libriaries

Dear Students,

While your physical library is closed, your virtual library is very much open and you can start your search for our online sources at our website by clicking on the image above. This AH 225 guide provides links to many resources such as ebooks and full-text journal articles along with instructions how to access them.  I and my library colleagues are working remotely and are available to answer your questions. I encourage you to email me if problems arise.  Also, see the "Get More Help" box below my profile.

As always, I hope you enjoy doing research to learn about your chosen works of art and the themes they represent. Stay healthy and keep positive.

Your BU librarian,

Ruth Thomas
