Search for books at UNLV Libraries and beyond using Quick Search.
As of December 2017, the library catalog has been replaced by Quick Search powered by Primo, which searches for books and e-books, journal articles, videos, newspaper articles and more in UNLV's databases and collections. More about Quick Search.
The default search results will include books, online journal articles, newspaper articles, streaming video and more. Filters on the results page let you select materials by format, subject, date, or language, or you can opt to see only articles from peer-reviewed journals.
Log in with your ACE account to see results from more databases, to save and organize your items and searches, and to access your library account.
To limit your search to books and other items located in UNLV's Lied Library, use the Advanced Search form and change the Search Scope at the top from Everything to Lied Library.
YouTube is a gold mine for searching film footage. You might try searching for a year and a broad term like "men's fashion". Aim for primary sources like footage from newsreels or films - but remember that sources created for entertaining audiences can't always be taken at face value.
Primary sources: Articles, ads and images from the same time period as your object
ARTstor, Trade Catalogues and Vogue are good places to find visual sources.
Note that off-campus use of ARTstor requires you to first sign up for an account while you are on campus.
Secondary sources: journal articles from all academic disciplines
Secondary sources: articles by art historians and design professionals
