Arkyves – new subscription


Following a successful trial last year, we now subscribe to Arkyves.

Arkyves: A Reference tool for the History of Culture is a database, treasure trove and toolbox for those interested in the History of Culture. It is a single access point for thematic searches across a wide variety of cultural heritage collections, contributed by partners like the Dutch Rijksmuseum, the Netherlands Institute for Art History, the Herzog August Bibliothek, and the university libraries of Milan, Utrecht, Glasgow, and Illinois. Ordering and re-ordering motifs, themes, stories and iconographic details in kaleidoscopic fashion, Arkyves will make you find many things you did not realize you were looking for.

Access Arkyves via the Databases AZ list or DiscoverED.
