artlibraries.net – Virtual Catalogue for Art History
(www.artlibraries.net), formerly the VKK, is an international
specialized meta catalogue allowing the integrated retrieval of
bibliographic records and other objects of distinctive art historical
databases.
Currently, artlibraries.net gives access to more than 12 million
records, including a high percentage of records for articles in
periodicals, conference papers, festschriften, exhibition catalogues
and exhibition books, etc., and an increasing percentage of records
for archival and photographic materials as well as for online
resources.
artlibraries.net is not only a meta catalogue, but also an
international working community of more than 100 art libraries from
currently 14 countries worldwide. This conference is the fifth in the
series of bi-annual international artlibraries.net general conferences
and the second to be organized together with the Future of Art
Bibliography (FAB) project initiated by the Getty Research Institute.

artlibraries.net - Catalogue virtuel d’histoire de l’art
(www.artlibraries.net), l’ancien “VKK”, est un méta-catalogue
international qui permet l’interrogation simultanée de notices
bibliographiques et de références recensées dans des bases de données
spécialisées en histoire de l’art. Aujourd’hui, artlibraries.net donne
accès à plus de 12 millions de notices, incluant une proportion
importante d’articles de périodiques, d’actes de colloques, de
mélanges, de catalogues et livres d’expositions etc., aussi bien qu'un
nombre croissant de notices concernant des archives, des photos, des
ressources en ligne.
artlibraries.net n’est pas seulement un méta-catalogue, mais aussi une
communauté professionnelle internationale réunissant plus de 100
bibliothèques d’art dans actuellement 14 pays en Europe, Amérique du
Nord et Australie. Cette réunion est la cinquième dans la série des
conférences bi-annuelles internationales organisées par la communauté
d’artlibraries.net et la deuxième à être organisée conjointement avec
le projet The Future of Art Bibliography (FAB), dû à l’initiative du
Getty Research Institute.
