An online resource of Museum publications
month The Metropolitan Museum of Art launched MetPublications, a major
online resource that offers unparalleled in-depth access to the Museum's
renowned print and online publications. The online resource is free and
available to the public. It covers publications on art, art history,
archaeology, conservation, and collecting.
presents a rich and fascinating record of the last five decades of Met
scholarship," said Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of the
Metropolitan Museum. "I am particularly pleased that this new portal
allows us to share the Met's publications with a global audience. It
will extend the reach of our past, current, and future publications, and
give new life to out-of-print volumes."
The project is
substantial and growing- the museum hopes to expand and could eventually
offer access to nearly all books, Bulletins, and Journals published by
the Metropolitan Museum since its founding in 1870.
Readers may also
locate works of art from the Met's collections that are included within
MetPublications and access the most recent information about these works
in the Collections section of the Museum's website.
