The Visual Resources Library has a number of services and facilities available for the Department of Art and Art History and the college community. If you are interested in any of these services or have any questions, please contact the Visual Resources Curator at extension 2414.
ARTstor is a subscription service with access to more than one million images and their associated metadata. Everyone on campus has access to ARTstor. It enables instructors to:
MDID2 is our local digital asset management database. This database is hosted on our server, so students and instructors have 24/7 access to images for research, reference, and presentation.
The MDID collections currently cover a wide variety of topics in Art, Archaeology, and Art History. MDID2 also features an image viewer with zoom capability, excellent color quality, and also works well in tandem with ARTstor's powerful Offline Image Viewer.
The addition of images to the digital collections is done on a regular basis. These additions are made within the budget, staffing constraints, and the needs of the Department of Art.
Specific images can be requested by filling out an image request form, available from the Visual Resources Curator. These requests are subject to the Curator's approval and should not be for non-academic use.
Because of the time and expense involved in digital image creation, all images and their associated metadata are stored in MDID so that others may benefit from this combined resource.
Generally, there is a two-week turn-around time for image requests of ten images or more. If there is a rushed or emergency situation, accommodations can be made. Please contact the Visual Resources Curator.
Faculty and staff from the Department of Art and Art History are welcome to use, but are asked not to remove, any of the scanning equipment located in the Visual Resources Library.
Faculty, staff, and student assistants from outside the Department of Art and Art History may also use the scanning equipment. Please schedule an appointment with the Visual Resources Curator before doing so.
