Special subject indexing covers persons, places, institutions, buildings, works of art, and topical subjects, with most subject terms in both English and French. Includes the International Bibliography of Art (IBA), covering the years 2008 and part of 2009, and the Répertoire de la litterature de l'art (RILA), one of the predecessors of BHA, with records that cover 1975–1989.
