What is arthistoricum.net featuring to date?
Since January 2012, two previously independent resources called "ViFaArt – Virtual Library for Contemporary Art" and "arthistoricum.net – Virtual Library for Art History" have been joint together, forming a new service called arthistoricum.net. This unique union makes it now possible to research the whole subject spectrum belonging to Art History. The special interest collection of Art History focuses on Medieval and Early European Art History, including art influenced by Europe in the USA, Canada and Australia, continuing chronologically from the Early Christian era until 1945. The special interest collection of Contemporary Art continues the art historical subject spectrum to include European and North American Art History from 1945.
arthistoricum.net contains text and image resources as well as comprehensive, academically relevant information dealing with all media from the Middle Ages up to the present.
arthistoricum.net is a joint portal of the Saxon State and University Library Dresden (SLUB Dresden) and the Heidelberg University Library (UB Heidelberg). It is presented in cooperation with the Art History Department of the Ludwig Maximilian University Munich (LMU) (Prof. Dr. Hubertus Kohle) as well as with other partners.
arthistoricum.net pools the resources and know-how of the responsible partner institutions, thus making this portal an essential forum for research and teaching.
A thorough and comprehensive overview of art historical publications, whether originally published in print, hybrid or purely online forms, is the goal of arthistoricum.net, and builds the core of the new search function. It is offered by the SLUB Dresden on basis of the discovery system Primo of ExLibris. Indexed over the SLUB catalog, an art specific selection is offered to specialized scientists. The various data sources integrated into the new portal are supplemented by the possibility of researching artlibraries.net, the Virtual Catalog for Art History – a well-established meta-search system covering several independent catalog systems.
With the components "Publishing" and "Reviews," arthistoricum.net facilitates Internet-based open access academic work and publishing. In the "Subjects" section, the Virtual Library for Art provides digitalized versions of specialized text collections, as well as access to and information about sources for images relevant to your research. These functions are complemented by the "Thematic Portals," where the information presented goes beyond bibliographic resources to include various forums concerning specific aspects of art and art history.
arthistoricum.net is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG)
