The ARTSTOR image database has multiple uses – and not just for GRCC art students and faculty! View and reuse high-quality images from the “world’s leading museums, photo archives, scholars, and artists and are searchable in one easily-navigated repository.”
A new feature allows you to download and save the “detailed view” with title, artist, location, date, materials, school, etc.! New images are added monthly; all images are rights-cleared for educational use. Recent additions to ARTSTOR include modern and contemporary art from the Phillips Collection; graphic photography from Magnum Photos; and, additions from the Scala Archives in Italy.
GRCC’s NewsBank America’s News database provides Hot Topics – “an easier path to locating topics of interest related to current global issues, events and people for personal and course research.”
In addition to the expected Presidential transition and Covid-related topics, January Hot Topics covers: the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction; rising popularity of chess and the Queen’s Gambit; the Nashville bombing; Charley Pride; Chuck Yeager; and, North Sea fossil fuel extraction. Take a look at the January Hot Topics.
