Accessing Digital Content: A Library How-To
Since the launch of the ACC Library Digital Collections last fall, we've been gathering your feedback and making adjustments to the database to increase its functionality. Thanks to everyone who has taken a look at the collections, filled out our survey, and/or stopped to chat about our online resources and website at the library booth at one of the ACC Shows or at SOFA Chicago. Your feedback has been an invaluable means for us to improve our services and ensure that what we put online benefits your research needs and satisfies your innate curiousity as makers, curators, scholars, students, and craft appreciators.
In an effort to better explain the usefulness of the Digital Collections, we've created a brief video tutorial to walk you through the best methods for accessing materials and searching the database. This video focuses on our ACC Newsletter Collection (1957-1986), a wonderful resource for in-depth information on particular craft artists, exhibitions, and events. If you've struggled with accessing our newsletters online, or if you have yet to take a look at the Digital Collections, please check us out!
If you have additional comments or questions, feel free to contact us at [email protected].
