Finding Exhibition Catalogs in FisherCat

Almost every library record for an art catalog includes the subject word Exhibitions:

In addition, almost every library record for an exhibition catalog has a description that includes the searchable word "exhibition" :

Published to accompany the exhibition Renoir landscapes, 1865-1883 at the National Gallery, London, 21 Feb.-20 May, 2007; the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, 8 June-9 September, 2007; and the Philadelphia Museum of Art: 4 Oct. 2007-6 Jan. 2008.
Catalogue of an exhibition held Nov. 25, 2005-Feb. 5, 2006, Kunsthalle Wien.

To find an exhibition catalog focused on an artist or a particular topic, perform a keyword search that includes the artist's name (last is usually sufficient unless it's a common name or word) or the topic(s) and the search word "exhibition?" -- this truncation (symbol: ? or *) will search for both the words "exhibition" and the "exhibitions."
