Session: Exhibitor Presentations

Presented by Diane Fortenberry

With the publication of The Grove Dictionary of Art Online, the work of over 6800 internationally renowned scholars is now available on one website. In addition to a demonstration of the site, the discussion will elucidate the process by which this 34-volume printed reference work was transferred to the electronic medium. The philosophy behind the creation of a virtual ‘librarian’ for coping with the vastness of undifferentiated offerings on the web, and plans for a dynamic and interactive community of the arts built upon The Dictionary’s constantly updated core of authoritative information will also be considered.
