OCLC and artlibraries.net Collaborate to Create the Art Discovery Group Catalogue

By Africa S. Hands

From OCLC:

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 will initially include the holdings of art libraries from Europe, North America and Australia. Additional art libraries will join the initiative. Participating libraries include the IRIS Consortium in Italy, the Institut National d’Histoire d’Art (INHA), the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Canada, the National Art Library of the Victoria and Albert Museum, the kubikat union catalogue of the German research institutes in Florence, Munich, Paris and Rome, and the National Gallery of Australia.
