The Getty Research Portal™ is a free online catalog of publications about art, artists, cultural history, and theory and criticism of art. Drawing from numerous art libraries and institutes, the portal contains over 86,000 titles. Included among these are publications from the Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative, a Getty Foundation program that helps museums create multimedia, web-based collection catalogues.

Find the Getty Research Portal™ and many other arts-specific databases on the Arts Databases page. If you are off-campus for the break, you'll need to connect to the Yale network via VPN to access some of these databases. For help, see this guide to logging in to CAS from off-campus and the Yale ITS page about Multifactor Authentication.
