Limelight for Artifact
Limelight for Artifactwww.artifact.ac.uk
Artifact, the guide to Internet resources in the arts and creative industries has added a new feature, Limelight, to its site. Limelight will showcase a different topic each week, featuring individual artists, subjects of topical and/or temporal relevance, new and noteworthy Web sites, or forthcoming events, exhibitions and festivals. Each feature will provide information, links to related sites within the Artifact database and suggestions for related Artifact searches.
The first issue of Limelight can be found at www.artifact.ac.uk/limelight.php or can be linked to straight from the Artifact homepage. As this first issue is a beta version, it is a special bumper edition featuring four well-known artists who were born in the month of January – George Balanchine, choreographer; Philip Glass, composer; Franz Schubert, composer; and Cindy Sherman, photographer.
Artifact is the free Internet guide to architecture, communications and media, culture, design, fashion and beauty, performing arts and the visual arts. It aims to be the UK Higher and Further Education first choice for accessing quality online resources for teaching and learning in the arts and creative industries. Each resource and Web site in Artifact is selected by subject specialists for its academic quality and subject relevance and includes a description of the resource’s key features.
Artifact is managed by the Manchester Metropolitan University Library on behalf of a Project Consortium consisting of CALIM (Consortium of Academic Libraries in Manchester), the London Institute Library and Learning Resources, South Cheshire College Learning Resources Centre and MIMAS at Manchester Computing. It is funded by JISC through the Resource Discovery Network (RDN, www.rdn.ac.uk).
