Google announced in 2004 a collaboration with institutional libraries to digitize large quantities of books: the Google Books Library Project. Public domain books are available on a full view open access basis. Copyrighted material is treated in one of three ways. Google negotiates with cooperating publishers through its Google Books Partner Program for "Limited Preview" of entire pages or sections within books by readers. For scanned books without copyright permissions, "snippets" are available. For remaining books basic information is provided without ability to search within the book. The snippets inform readers about the relevance of the book to their subject of inquiry.
A Google Book Search conducted April 26, 2008 located 651 books featuring either full view or Limited Preview with the search phrase "Ashcan artists." Books with "Limited Preview" include:
Metropolitan Lives: The Ashcan Artists and Their New York, By Rebecca Zurier, Robert W. Snyder, Virginia M. Mecklenburg, National Museum of American Art (U.S.), Published 1995 by W. W. Norton & Company, New York (N.Y.). 232 pages. ISBN:0393039013. Google Books says: "Showcases the exhibition" Note: Google Books offers a Limited Preview of this book.

For teachers and students wishing to study American art history from additional perspectives such as race and ethnic orientation, Resource Library contains texts related to a plethora of subjects. An easy way to identify specific texts is to use Resource Library's search feature, as articles and essays are fully indexed. Since American art museums often focus on local art history, an index to assist in identification of articles and essays with a regional focus is useful. See Resource Library's Sources of Articles and Essays Indexed by State within the United States for a handy guide.
