How to Use the Blog/ Research Tools

How to Use the Blog:

How to:
  1. Set Up your Accounts upon Instructor's Invitation/ Create Your Profiles (Interests etc.)
  2. The interace is very similar to Microsoft Word. Write your daily/weekly updates onto the Blog (including your observations around your surroundings, news you have read etc.) Check back for Instructor's announments such as this one.
  3. Upload your Weekly Assignments (reviews, responses) to the Blog
  4. Read each other's entries. Use the Comments link to Make Comments to each other's entry!
  5. Title/Label the blog entry appropriate to its aim and content.
  6. Upload images when posting your observations and weekly assignments. There's a button for uploading photos in the Blogger interface. Just click the photo button to upload a photo from your computer. If the photo you'd like to put on your blog is already on the web, put the link or use Flickr for personal images.
  7. Check spelling/ Make sure to give Credits to Images (Artist, Gallery, website) and Links
  8. You can also post by Email

Research Tools at NYU Library:
the Fine & Decorative Arts Research Guide at this URL:

This will provide you with ideas about which resources would be most useful to you.

In addition to the resources listed there, I would also recommend resources like:

Bibliography of Asian Studies
Art & Humanities Citation Index
WorldCat (OCLC)

Finally, of the journals, NYU has only electronic coverage of Parachute. Electronic journals can be found at:
