Bibliography of the History of Art

Alternative Titles
Bibliographie d'histoire de l'art, BHA
Répertoire de la litterature de l'art, RILA
Description

The name BHA has been used informally to refer to a group of databases: RAA, RILA, BHA, and IBA. The data available on the Getty Web site comprises two of these databases: BHA and RILA. BHA (Bibliography of the History of Art/Bibliographie d'histoire de l'art) covers the years 1990-2007; the Getty Web version includes all records with abstracts in French or English and all subject terms in French and English.  RILA (Répertoire de la litterature de l'art) covers 1975-1989.  At present, the Getty has no plans to add RAA (Répertoire d'art et d'archéologie), which covers 1973-1989.  IBA (International Bibliography of Art), covering 2008 to the present, is a separate subscription-only database from ProQuest that is not included on this free website provided by Getty.
