Grove Art and Music

Hey, all,

Looks like we'll be replacing some databases. We have a trial set up to Grove Art Online and Grove Music Online - these two will be available instead ofArtStor which isn't getting much use, and AP Wirephotos for the same reason...

Start date will be about July 1st, but look at the trial via our Library Tab page in Pipeline.

Info about the databases:

Art:
thirty day trial (23-APR-09 - 23-MAY-09)
to Grove Art Online, the most comprehensive online reference resource
for all aspects of the visual arts worldwide from prehistory to the
present day! Now available through the Oxford Art Online gateway,
Grove Art Online features over 45,000 signed articles, 5,500 images,
40,000 image links, timelines of world art, MoMA lesson plans, and
links to ARTstor (for subscribers to this service -we have it until
the end of the year).

A Grove Art Online subscription now also includes access to the full text
of the Encyclopedia of Aesthetics, The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Art
Terms, and the Oxford Companion to Western Art.
