New York Art Resources Consortium Launches Online Catalog
NYARC has recently launched a pioneering project called Arcade, an online, shared catalog of the Frick Art Reference Library, the Brooklyn Museum Libraries & Archives and the Museum of Modern Art Library.
The project was made possible with more than $1 million in funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. In addition, over the past decade, METRO has provided substantial funding to the Brooklyn Museum Libraries & Archives for retrospective conversion of its holdings.
Combining the distinguished resources of each library into a virtual collection, the catalog unites more than 800,000 records representing material of art and cultural history from the antique to the contemporary. Exhibition and art collection catalogs, monographs, periodicals, rare books, photograph collections, artist and vertical files, auction sale catalogs, artists’ books, archival materials, digital resources, and specialized databases may now be easily located.
