Hello, our library was closed on Friday and on Saturday, a big storm knocked out our power and we had to close again, so I apologize for this answer getting  late to you. The bad news is we have no individual books on the Venus or Woman of Willendorf, but you can check our online catalog under the Subject Art, Prehistoric then look through the indexes in these books for your subject. We do have three books on Aphrodite (the Greek name for Venus).  Search for Aphrodite  (Greek deity) under Subject.  We also have several specialized art encyclopedias you should look at in the N31 section of Reference, 2nd (main) floor.  Look in their indexes for Venus of Willendorf.

You can also search for journals by going to the library homepage, arrow down to ARTICLES & REFERENCE, then to ARCHITECTURE, FINE ARTS & MUSIC.  Look in these individual databases:  Art & Architecture Complete, ARTstor, Grove Art Online, and Oxford Art Online.  In most of these, put in the keywords VENUS OF WILLENDORF, then check FULL TEXT and if you want only scholarly journals, also check PEER-REVIEWED.  

Also look REFERENCE SOURCES, and then under the Gale Virtual Reference Library and put in your keywords.  You will get six sources. 

Good luck!

P.S. All of these resource are linked on your course LibGuide: - Look for the gold starred sources under the Search Strategy & Books tab and Articles & Reference tab.
