They provide a great resource for placing your work in the broader art historical context and often provide a brief bibliography in your chosen field.

Similar to a survey text, the Dictionary of Art Online provides encyclopedia style information on most topics and artists relevant to the art world. This is not a place to go to find specific articles, but rather general information about your work of art that might point you in a direction for your later research.
These are the web-based image banks in which to search for the works of art that are available in digital format. Thus, the search is most productive by artist.
Use the Bridgeman Art Image Collection, to search click on Search and enter either an artist, a work of art, or a keyword describing your work.
