Ingalls Library Digest: Curatorial Request, More New Databases, Image Services Changes

Welcome to the Ingalls Library Digest, your monthly condensed guide to new resources and information about your favorite research library. This post echoes the email newsletter sent to curatorial staff for your convenience and information.

CAA Reviews : In response to curatorial request, we have added the electronic component of College Art Association. There is no password for those connecting via the museum network. This vital resource covers all subjects of art history, reviewing new publications and exhibitions, as well as publishing essays and tracking dissertation research. The archive includes reviews back to 1998.

Image Services : Due to staffing and policy changes, the Ingalls Library will no longer offer scanning services. The CMA department of Photographic and Digital Imaging Services will assume responsibility for scanning from library materials as of May 2. Until then, or if you prefer a quicker turn around, the scanning station in the reference room is available to you. For those interested, reference staff will provide brief instruction in using the equipment.

More Books on JStor: As previously announced, numerous university presses have joined with JStor to make their titles available via the JStor platform. As of March, four more university presses, at University of California, Columbia, Cornell, and Harvard, have joined the project. Because JStor includes a large number of book reviews in the archived journals it offers, dynamic linking from review to book will provide fascinating new insights.

Staff Instruction: The Ingalls Library reference staff continues to offer highly flexible one on one instructional consultation. This includes instruction in new equipment, all databases, and the library catalog. Contact the reference staff with your needs.
