Mark Cole, our Associate Curator for American Painting & Sculpture, has a new article in the Summer issue of American Art. Asked to contribute to the Smithsonian’s quarterly issue devoted to American collections, he is joined by six other contributors writing about their American installations.
With the redesign of the Cleveland Museum of Art’s public website, the Ingalls Library has created a fresh new look for our own pages. The library catalog still resides at library.clevelandart.org, but we have streamlined the page. We call it the Collections Compass, and it consolidates the menus that once appeared on the left hand side of the page, at the top.
As previously mentioned, the Ingalls Library is going green. Recently our inter-library loan group, called SHARES, hired consulting firm California Environmental Associates to conduct a study of ILL procedures. The firm's task was to evaluate and make recommendations towards the goal of lowering the environmental impact of our consortium.
