New in Electronic Resources

Wednesday, February 13, 2019

The Library is pleased to announce some exciting new developments in our growing collection of electronic resources.

New titles have been added to RBdigital, the “digital newsstand” that allows members to download magazines to their computer or mobile device and read them using the RBdigital app. The Library now offers the New Yorker, Condé Nast Traveler, National Geographic, and Vogue, in addition to magazines previously available such as the New York Review of Books, the Economist, Harper’s, Utne Reader, and more. New issues are added to RBdigital as they are published.  (Unfortunately, the last issue of the the Atlantic available in RBdigital is January 2019.)

We also recently added The Grove Dictionary of Art to the resources available in Oxford Art Online. In addition to The Benezit Dictionary of Artists and other Oxford University Press art reference sources, Library members now have access to Grove’s 40,000 authoritative articles on artists, architects, movements, schools, craftsmen, and more. The original print edition, first published in 1996, spans 34 volumes, and the digital version continues to be revised and updated by a team of scholars with new articles added regularly. Entries include bibliographies for further research and there are thousands of searchable images.
