  • -Help Pages show to access thru IPad, IPhone, & IPod (IPhone 2.2.1+-IPod 2.2.1+-IPad-Safari 4+)
  • Overview. Options.
  • Diff. types of searching: Browsing; Keyword; Advanced Variety of BROWSING: geography, medium, collection, themes/topics (interesting topics), etc. Keyword good place to start & can then SEARCH WITHIN THE RESULTS Advanced: more precise searching
  • Imagesizes range from 1500 pixels to 10,000 pixels on a side Most common resolution display for computers is 1024 x 768 pixels Makes typical ARTstor image files two or more times larger than the monitor display 72 DPI (dots per inch)
  • Type of image need & reason looking for images becomes very important when choosing a resource
  • Resolution Colors Title
  • Not comprehensive
  • Example of how using ARTstor in conjunction w/ another image DB really helps Also example of how slight changes to vocab make big differenceFlickrARTstor vs. Flickr-> Library of Congress-> Ex: Migratory WorkersSearching “The Commons” -> Ex: Migrant LaborersInfoGuide
  • Images and GraphicsOur guidance about the use of images and graphics as fair use is affected significantly by the fourth fair use factor. It is often difficult or even impossible to get permission to use images and graphics. This situation is changing in some fields where it is now possible to license databases of good quality images at reasonable prices for nonprofit educational uses. For example, Saskia and other art history image vendors offer educational licenses. If it is easy to license the right to use the images you need, you should do so. But, for images for which a digital source is not readily available, or for which permission is difficult or impossible to obtain, use of images without permission in an educational document like a dissertation is probably a fair use. Again, you should document any efforts you make to obtain permission.“Fair Use Guidelines for Dissertations” from University of Texas at http://www.utexas.edu/ogs/etd/fair_use.html

    11. 11. STATEMENT ON FAIR USE OF IMAGES FOR TEACHING, RESEARCH & STUDY http://www.vraweb.org/organization/pdf/VRAFairUseGuidelinesFinal.pdf Historically, graduate students have not obtained permissions. However, as theses have been posted to online repositories, owners/operators have often required that students obtain all copyright permissions (as a way of managing their own risks). As a result, students are required to address copyright issues to obtain their academic degrees. VRA Statement argues for Fair Use regarding the inclusion of images in dissertations & theses.
    12. 12. Visual literacy = A set of abilities that enables an individual to effectively find, interpret, evaluate, use, and create images and visual media. “Visual literacy competency standards for higher education.” Association of College & Research Libraries, 2011. http://www.ala.org/acrl/files/standards/vis ualliteracy.pdf .
    13. 13. The Farm by Joan Miró (1921-22) Design elements:  Color/Color theory  Detailed realism combined with Cubist elements Art & Ecology  Artists as keen observers of natural world  Paintings become resource for studying nature(National Gallery of Art Classroom for Teachers & Students)
