ARTstor, Archivision and CDL deliver a payload!

stata-center-gehryWith some end of the year money available, the California Digital Library has licensed three huge segments of the vendor Archivision‘s fantastic images of architecture and public art for all UC campuses.  The Archivision Base Collection has 16,370 images “representing major Greek, Roman, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, 18th & 19th Century and Modern sites”.   Archivision Module One has 5,893 images that build on the above periods and also includes Ancient and Islamic Egypt.  Archivision Module Two has 6,395 images of Early Modern and cairo-citadel Modern European architecture, Islamic Turkey, and more US sites.   All the collections include drawings and plans that complement Scott Gilchrist’s stunning photographs.  You can explore the more than 28,000 new images through ARTstor – look under “Institutional Collections”.

Very soon we hope to have Module 4 up and running (remember that wonderful VRA raffle prize??) – with that we’ll have access to a total of nearly 35,000 of these wonderful vendor images.  Just the boost we need right now!
