New Database DesignInform!

We now have access to the database DesignInform. Covers art, design, and architecture of the late 19th to early 20th century. Consists of three main databases, all of which are projects to index and digitize backfiles of journals and annuals. Design Abstracts Retrospective will index over 70 journals and annuals published between 1900-1987. Design ProFILES contains profiles of nearly 20,000 artists, designers, craftspeople and architects active since c.1900. ReVIEW contains digitized backfiles of The Studio (London) 1893-1910, Deutsche Kunst und Dekoration (Darmstadt) 1897-1910, and Art et D├ęcoration (Paris) 1897-1910 with more journals forthcoming.
