Welcome again to the Ingalls Library Digest, your source for news of note related to your research home.
Arts and Humanities Citation Index : Newly added to the library’s electronic resources, is the Arts and Humanities Citation Index. This resource is especially useful for researchers who utilize bibliographies to research similar topics through citation pearl growing. As well, it is exceptionally useful in determining who cites who and how often, and thus measuring the influence of a particular scholarly work. For a demonstration, please feel free to contact a reference staff member.
Records of Jacques Seligmann & Co. : The Archives of American Art recently announced the online availability of the fully digitized Jacques Seligmann & Co. gallery records – 203 linear feet of archival records represented by 330, 749 digital files, making it the largest collection digitized by AAA. These records include numerous references and correspondence related to the Cleveland Museum of Art. An astute colleague discovered the original bill of sale for La Vie, prior to the museum’s ownership of the painting.
Picturing the Netherlandish Canon : The Courtauld Institute has made available Pictorum aliquot celebrium, præcipué Germaniæ Inferioris, effigies, an early modern publication on art and Netherlandish culture, which features 68 portrait prints of related artists. This website offers the entire text, including high quality digital images, free of charge. Within the text, links to biographies for each artist via Grove Art Online provide context; those on the museum network may follow these links at will. With a simple PDF spooler installed in your printer menu by the IT department, you can easily save copies of images to your desktop. Ask Matthew, that’s me, for more information.
Summer Hours : With the arrival of summer and the departure of the students, we shift to summer hours. Wednesdays we close at 5pm, beginning May 25th and running through August.
Details on Scanning : To guide you through the process of having library materials scanned by the museum’s department of Photographic and Digital Imaging Services, we have created the following page.
