OpenBibArt: A Century of Western Art Bibliography Now Available Online
From The Getty Library / Getty Research Institute:
OpenBibArt, an open-access art-historical database, is now online, making nearly a century of western bibliography on art history easily available to all.
The result of a successful collaboration among three institutions: the Institut national d’histoire de l’art (INHA) in Paris, the Getty Research Institute (GRI) in Los Angeles, and the Institut de l’Information Scientifique et Technique of the CNRS (Inist-CNRS) in Nancy, OpenBibArt unifies the contents of four related datasets, whose history is described below, into a single open search platform developed by Inist-CNRS.
Researchers may freely search OpenBibArt in French or English to discover a wide range of citations from among nearly 1.2 million journal articles, books, and exhibition and auction sales catalogues published between 1910 and 2007 on topics in the arts and archeology from late Antiquity to the mid-2000s.
Over the course of nearly 100 years, each of the four resources now included in OpenBibArt played a significant role in systematically documenting hundreds of thousands of art-historical and archeological publications of their time.
