The article outlines the significance of specialized libraries to art researchers in Great Britain. Previously, these students experienced a difficulty in gathering information because fieldwork is necessary in obtaining a particular information. They have to study the arts of Africa, the Pacific and the indigenous America. However, through the emergence of technological innovations, they can find information through virtual exhibitions, the Internet and other electronic resources such as Grove Art Online, Anthropological Index Online and Eighteenth Century Collections Online.
