Finally! After much anticipation, the Getty Research Portal, developed by the Getty Research Institute, is available. It contains links to over 20,000 art history titles, from the Getty and eight other institutions, with plans to keep on growing. And, it’s endorsed by our own Prof. Ann Jensen Adams!

Trying to capture images of works of art in museums is a tricky business, which prompted Robert Baldwin, Associate Professor of Art History at Connecticut College, to develop a Guide to Art Photography in Museums (pdf), which covers equipment, image file type, and other useful tips. The guide can also be found on Professor Baldwin’s website, Social History of Art, where he also posts his own digital images, sample syllabi and other teaching tools for public use (with attribution).
