Developed from a merger of high-quality databases from EBSCO and H.W. Wilson, and including many unique sources that were never previously available, this database covers a broad range of related subjects, from fine, decorative and commercial art, to various areas of architecture and architectural design.

The artnet Fine Art Auctions Database contains 3.5 million auction records from over 500 auction houses worldwide that have been compiled since 1985. Works from over 180,000 artists are represented. The Database is searchable by artist, title, sale location, date, size, and price. Over half the records include illustrations. 

ARTstor is a rich digital library that offers coherent collections of art images and descriptive information as well as the software tools to enable active use of the collections. 

AskART is an online database containing over 100,000 artists. From its inception the focus was on American artists from the early 16th-Century through the present. However, in January of 2007 the database was expanded to include international artists` auction records.

designinform consists of three databases:

Design Abstracts Retrospective (DAR) is a new ongoing abstracting and indexing service that aims to cover many of the most important design and applied arts journals and annuals published during the twentieth century.

Design ProFILES (DP), like its sister publication, Design Abstracts Retrospective (DAR), is an ongoing project. It covers the same subject fields as DAR and is by far and away the largest and most comprehensive dictionary of design and designers ever compiled.

ReVIEW is an indispensable new service that aims to digitize many of the most important decorative and fine arts journals published in Europe and the USA during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, making them available for the first time in a searchable form online.

German Literary Expressionism Online
German Literary Expressionism Online is based upon the many-volumed index to the journals associated with German Expressionism from the period 1900-1925, Paul Raabe’s Index Expressionismus (1972). This online version now includes not only the full index itself, but also full text of all the journals, anthologies, yearbooks and collections—a total of 2,404 issues—listed in Raabe’s index. The individual resources are presented online as facsimiles, with a variety of search possibilities providing easy access to the individual editions. The articles can be found using various search criteria or full-text searches, thus making it possible to work with the texts and images. The database also contains bio-bibliographical articles on the 350 Expressionist authors as an additional consultation function. The edition is rounded off by a scholarly introduction.

Gordon's contains international auction results with sales prices of almost 45,000 prints.
