Support scholarship and creative inspiration with our new primary source collection that spans the spectrum of arts and the history of architecture, from fine and applied arts, through to interior and industrial design, landscape gardening, and restoration.
With deep backfile coverage from first issues through to 2005 / 2015, this is an essential resource for vocational study and scholarly research of the arts from the late nineteenth to the twenty-first century.*
Art and Architecture Archive offers many titles previously unavailable in digital form, allowing libraries to replace torn and worn print issues with pristine digital facsimiles. Via the powerful ProQuest interface, users can search the full text, browse and retrieve articles and advertisements, and view illustrations, photographs and technical plans in detail and in context, to gain new insights and inspiration.
For libraries, AAA reduces the work of managing and preserving print journals, while improving access and building collections. For students and scholars, this resource provides rich stores of information and images to inspire thought and creativity.
* Policy is to include, by default, every issue from the first through to 2005 / 2015 and to scan from cover to cover. Due to the rarity of some of the historical print sources, however, there are some small gaps (pages or issues).
Reduces the work of managing and maintaining the corresponding print journals while improving access to this content.
Acquire previously un-held magazines and rare U.S. and U.K. titles/issues and reduce strain on ageing print materials – all without increasing storage and collection management costs.
Seek new insights from a selection of the most important magazines in the field from Britain, Canada, and the United States. View previously inaccessible archival material reproduced in full-page image to capture images, advertisements, and illustrations. Cross-search with historical newspapers and other magazine archives on ProQuest for an expanded field of enquiry.
ProQuest’s research environment propels research journeys forward with powerful tools for discovery and sharing and managing information.
Art & Architecture Archive is available to acquire as two general collections (encompassing publications across the arts and architecture) or as two discipline specific collections (Art & Photography and Architecture & Design).
Collection 2 and the discipline-specific collections are still in progress. Coverage dates for these refelect the anticipated date ranges for these titles on completion. Small gaps in the availability of source material for digitization (issues/pages) may cause some of these dates to change slightly.
