Featured Resource: The Grove Dictionary Of Art Online

The Grove Dictionary of Art Online is a comprehensive online resource encompassing all aspects of the visual arts worldwide from prehistory through the 1990s. Its contents include over 41,000 scholarly articles on the arts and culture of Asia, Africa, Europe, the Americas, and Pacific regions, with links to images and further information in museum and art-related Web sites. The database is regularly updated and expanded to include revisions of original articles as well as new essays on additional topics and contemporary artists. Researchers can use keywords to search headings or the full text of articles. A browsable hypertext index is also available.

    The database is further enhanced with over 30,000 searchable images from the Bridgeman Art Library. A quick image search on "Chartres" returns 37 views of the cathedral, including views of interior and exterior architecture, architectural drawings, sculpture, and stained glass windows.
    Explore this new resource by pointing your browser to http://www.groveart.com/tdaonline/index.asp or by visiting the Libraries' subject guide for Art and Art History at http://web.uflib.ufl.edu/afa/art .
