    Key resources:

    • Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History
      Sponsored by the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Locate artists from the time period being researched, who may have depicted costumes of the day.
    • History of Costume 3100 B.C.-1992 DVD
      (Trexler Library, ON RESERVE)
      This DVD can be checked out of the library. The first use on any PC will require a key code, written on the DVD case and on the DVD itself.

      The companion notebooks, kept with the slide collection from which the DVD was made commercially, can be useful for purposes of clarification. Ask for the "History of Costume slide collection notebooks" at the Trexler Library circulation desk.
