Enhancing the Educational Value of Graphics Atlas

Jae Gutierrez

IPI recently received a $17,000 Digital Resources grant from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation to add new preservation content to IPI’s online resource Graphics Atlas. Initially launched in 2007, Graphics Atlas currently has over 20,000 unique users a year and is an interactive digital resource that guides users through a process of identification and characterization of graphic print media. In doing so, it has proven successful in helping collections care professionals identify objects in print media collections and to better understand the history and material composition of print and photographic materials. New content, based on years of preservation research at IPI, will be developed by Al Carver-Kubik, Research Scientist, and will expand Graphics Atlas’ function to also inform preservation planning for print media collections.
