Artstor and Shared Shelf in UDaily

ARTstor logoYou probably already know that UD is a longtime subscriber to Artstor, but you may not know what Shared Shelf and Shared Shelf Commons (sometimes called “Artstor Commons”) are.

UDaily has just published an article about Artstor and Shared Shelf at UD that may answer some of your questions. The Visual Resources Center has been working with Artstor and the UD Library for years, so please feel free to contact me anytime if you need more information about any of these services!

The Visual Resources Center is pleased to announce its 2014 Summer Internship in Visual Resources Management.

Undergraduate interns have to be enrolled and in residence in Newark during the summer, and will devote about 10 hours a week to their projects from the beginning of June to the end of August. Your exact schedule is flexible. There is no pay for the internship, but you will receive 3 credits at the completion of your project. You do not have to be an Art History major to apply.

Applying is easy: all you need to send are a cover letter and résumé. Click here to learn more about the internship and how to apply for it. And please feel free to contact me at visualresources@udel.edu if you would like to discuss possibilities for the internship in person.

All applications must be received by Monday, April 21, 2014.

The Visual Resources Collection is now the Visual Resources Center

VRC LogoWith the start of the 2013-2014 academic year, the Visual Resources Collection officially becomes the Visual Resources Center. Our new name is meant to better reflect the wide range of activities we now undertake in a completely digital environment.

But even with this change, the task of building our online image collections will remain the cornerstone of what we do. And of course we will still be, in every sense, the “VRC.”
