10:00 – 11:00 am EDT

As the Index of Medieval Art transitions to free access on July 1, 2023, we will be planning several online training sessions to introduce the database to those who might be unfamiliar with it or might want to learn more about its features. The first session will take place via Zoom on Thursday August 3, 2023 from 10:00 – 11:00 am EDT.

Have you been wondering if you are getting the best results for your searches? Are you unsure about how to use our Browse Lists? This session, led by Index specialists Maria Alessia Rossi and Jessica Savage, will demonstrate how the database can be used with advanced search options, filters, and browse tools to locate works of medieval art. We will also look at the new subject taxonomy search tool that encourages further discovery of the online collection. 

There will be a Q&A period at the end of the session, so please bring any questions you might have about your research! To register for the workshop and receive the Zoom link, please fill out the form below.
