Art Source and AP Images on trial – check them out!

For one month only, Cardiff Met Libraries are trialling two new electronic resources for all Cardiff Met students and staff.  We introduce you to…  Art Source and API Images

Art Source

This is a huge arts-focussed journal article database and an upgrade from the already excellent Art Full Text. From Art Source, you can read whole articles from over 300 Art & Design titles, including 70 full text journals that already exist in Art Full Text. 

New journal titles in Art Source include:

  • Artifact
  • Camerawork
  • Craft
  • Arts International
  • Critical Studies in fashion and Beauty
  • GreenSource
  • Poster
  • Studies in Comics
  • Rhizomes
  • Typo 

AP Images

To explore a range of high quality photographs from across the globe, check out Associated Press Images (API).  Here you can find a huge range of contemporary and archival news photographs of important events and people.  You can find good examples of indigenous costumes and traditions, photographs of art installations & galleries around the world.  And there are plenty of photographs for those still reminiscing about the fantastic Welsh Six Nations rugby victory in February. 

The trial for both Art Source and AP Images end on 31st May.  So have a browse and let us know what you think on the feedback form.
