Re: [BKARTS] BOOK_ARTS-L Digest - 9 Oct 2007 to 10 Oct 2007 (#2007-161)

please post the following announcement:

The John M. Flaxman Library at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago has recently introduced a new digital library interface for the Joan Flasch Artists' Books Collection: <http://digital-libraries.saic.edu/jfabc>http://digital-libraries.saic.edu/jfabc

The Joan Flasch Artists' Book Collection includes close to 5,000 artists' books, multiples, video and audio recordings, periodicals, digital works, reference books, ephemera, exhibition catalogs, and examples of experimental art practices, all created over the last four decades by artists of local, national, and international significance. Renowned and unique in its vast scope and easy accessibility the collection is housed in its own study room on the fifth floor of the School's Sharp Building. Students, faculty, and the general public are welcome to drop in or to arrange in advance for formal presentations. The Flasch Collection also hosts readings, performances, seminars, and other campus events addressing the production, use, or context of experimental art practices.

Our new digital library allows worldwide access to our growing catalog, provided for educational and research purposes. Powered by CONTENTdm software, it currently contains descriptions and discovery images for approximately a third of the items in the Joan Flasch Artists' Book Collection, with more added continuously. A richly indexed online collection, the new catalog can be searched and browsed by criteria such as artists, titles, and terminology specific to our holdings. The site also includes a growing list of links to artists' books resources world wide, as well as a calendar for exhibitions and events occurring in the book room.
