Search Art Libraries Worldwide with WorldCat
UBLIN, Ohio, 1 May 2014—The new Art Discovery Group Catalogue, a view of WorldCat that brings together items from leading art libraries around the world, was launched today at the Art Libraries Society of North America annual conference, in Washington, D.C.
Coordinated by artlibraries.net, an international working community of more than 100 art libraries from 16 countries, the new catalogue offers an art-focused research experience within the WorldCat environment. Art library catalogues will now be searchable alongside additional content from a multitude of online journals and databases, promising more results on a global scale. The project has been developed as part of The Future of Art Bibliography initiative, with generous support from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation and The Getty Research Institute, whose initial funding made the launch possible.
“The Art Discovery Group Catalogue is the best place to start for art-related content discovery,” said Geert-Jan K
