I extracted the following from the CLAYART listserve.
It seems both interesting and relevant so pass it on!

>Subject: What's new with ArtSource
Here is a list of new things on ArtSource since April 19, 1994. Martin
Raish's Resource List and the ARLIS-L archives are available via anonymous ftp
in addition to being available via WWW.
Information on accessing ArtSource is included at the end of this message. I
received the ArtSource statistics for April - it was accessed 8,109 times
during the month. Not a bad beginning!
Thanks to all contributors again! Mary
WHAT'S NEW WITH ArtSource
May 6, 1994
% Electronic Resources for Art Historians is a list of resources compiled by
Martin Raish at Binghamton University Libraries. For information about the
project click here.
% Beauty For Ashes is a group of artists who invite you to enter their
world of urban monastacy through ethereal poetry and photography.
In addition to English, the group also is hoping to make their web
truly bi-lingual with the addition of a Japanese version of their home
page and support for JIS.
May 3, 1994
% ARLIS-L Archives Archived messages from the ARLIS-L electronic
discussion list. There is a grouping by month, but some interesting
discussions have been pulled out by topic.
April 24, 1994
% Le Louvre This part of the ENST World Wide Web server is dedicated to
exhibitions such as those you could see in the Louvre. It's a virtual museum
however, collections shown here are not necessarily related to those in the
stone museum itself.
However, since this web server is physically located in Paris, it seemed natural
to name after the Louvre this art exhibition area. (Includes Les tr6s riches
heures du Duc de Berry.)
April 21, 1994
% Interactive Color This directory contains the latest version of SDSC's
"Interactive Color"(formerly "Color Tutorial") application for the Macintosh.
WARNING: The stack is over 4 megabytes in size.
April 20, 1994 Photography Database PANIX photographic
information database includes datasheets on film, chemicals and more.
April 19, 1994
% NationalGallery of Art [ursus.maine.edu]Via Ursus.maine.edu.
Choose B (connect to another database, then Choose 2 (National
Gallery of Art).
Via URSUS.maine.edu. The National Gallery of Art Database contains basic
information on over 1,600 individual works of art from the National Gallery,
including paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints.
The database can be searched by artist, title, keywords, style or medium, using
search procedures identical to those available to URSUS users.
% Art's Wire Artist's Network Gopher Arts Wire is a national
computer-based communications network for the arts community.
This is the Arts Wire Gopher. Look here for "Art-21", the first
national arts conference ever held by the National Endowment for the
ArtSource, a gathering place for networked information about
art, is now a reality in 2 forms. Both an ftp site and a Mosaic
server have been established.
The ftp site now has 2 projects loaded on it. The first is the full-
text of a bibliography by Lesley Bell entitled "Gaining Access to
Visual Information." Lesley recently received the Gerd
Muehsam Award for this work. A set of documents was
provided by Julie Melby at the Whitney and includes an
Exhibition Schedule, a Chronology of the Whitney, lists of
performances, staff, and traveling exhibitions.
The ftp address is convex.cc.uky.edu in the directory
pub/artsource. Directions for ftp'ing are at the end of this
The second part of ArtSource is the Mosaic server. I am really
excited about this phase. This will make all of the resources
available by pointing and clicking. For the visually-oriented this
is a real plus! To access the home page you must have the Mosaic
client running on your machine (available from
ftp.ncsa.uiuc.edu). The URL for ArtSource is:
Included on this server are pointers to discipline specific
resources (such as the Ceramics gopher), bibliographies, museum
information, art and architecture gopher sites, image collections,
electronic exhibitions (the images automatically load on your
screen), and eletronic journals on art. Everything that is
available on the ArtSource ftp site is also available using Mosaic.
University of Kentucky
To ftp the information do the following:
Type your e-mail address as the password
There is a directory for bibliographies and a directory for whitney.
You will type cd and either bibliographies or whitney to get into
those directories. To receive the files you will type get filename
and the file will transfer. Remember that this is a unix machine
and IS case sensitive. quit will end the ftp session. Typing cd ..
(that's a space between the cd and the 2 dots) will move you up a
directory level and dir will list the files.
Good luck - if you have trouble, consult an expert or get a book!
