Survey of

Online Exhibition Catalogues, Brochures, Gallery Guides and Related Materials

Published by Non-Profit Institutions for Free Viewing


Benefits of the project


This project has three benefits:

- Publishing a list of non-profit institutions, with qualifying scholarly materials made available by them for free online viewing, enables other organizations considering similar projects both the benefit of examining various methods of presentation and discovering future contacts. Subsequent inquiries to organizations that have published materials may lead to cost/benefit analysis and production of further online publications.
- The survey enables Traditional Fine Arts Organization (TFAO) to place deep links to newly found online texts in catalogues for the benefit of scholars, educators and students worldwide.
- TFAO will gain further insight into trends of online publishing of exhibition catalogues, brochures, gallery room guides and related materials. Analysis will provide guidance on future emphasis to be placed towards online publishing of texts covering selected topics and by certain authors in TFAO's Resource Library. See the acquisition and deselection of content page in the TFAO Free Online Digital Library section for related information.
