The International Bibliography of Art (IBA) is the definitive resource for scholarly literature on western art, and is published exclusively by ProQuest. IBA is the successor to the Bibliography of the History of Art (BHA), and includes the most recent index records that were created by the Getty Research Institute as part of BHA. These records were created in 2008-2009, and cover scholarship up to 2009, including retrospective records for material published in previous years. ProQuest will be building on this by adding 25,000 new records per year going forwards, ensuring unbroken coverage of indexed journals.

ProQuest is retaining the editorial policies which made BHA one of the most trusted and frequently consulted sources in the field, and will use the Getty Research Institute’s own thesaurus and authority files. The bibliography provides authoritative coverage of international scholarship within the following broad parameters:

  • European art from late antiquity to the present, American art from the colonial era to the present, and global art since 1945
  • Visual arts in all media, plus decorative and applied arts, museum studies and conservation, archaeology and classical studies, antiques and architectural history, and related fields
  • Scholarship from at least 500 core journals, plus detailed coverage of monographs, essay collections,conference proceedings and exhibition catalogues
  • Very international coverage, with at least 60% of records from non-English-language publications (principally German, French, Italian and Spanish)
