Flickr, the popular photo storing and sharing site, is getting a major make-over. The new look goes live on February 28th. In addition to a new look, they are introducing a new uploader and will actually be dropping the price of a two-year pro account. You can read more about the changes at BetaBeat.
ARTstor has put together a fun online exhibit of items from their collection inspired by Donwton Abbey: ARTstor Visits Downton Abbey.
They are soliciting ideas for other things reminiscent of the show. Drexel University Libraries has a subscription to ARTstor, so you can see what you can find. You can access ARTstor here.
I plan on using this blog to alert you to new services the library has or, in this case, a trial of new features for an existing service. Not all the things I will be posting will be of equal interest to all program. For example, I think this announcement will be of particular interest to members of Design and Merchandizing and Fashion Design.
As the Liaison Librarian to the Westphal College of Media Arts and Design, I promote and manage the libraries' collaborative relationships with the departments and programs of the college, including the development of library collections and the provision of specialized reference, instruction, and consultative services.
