Metropolitan Museum Puts Catalogs Online- Just in Time for the Holidays!

On Friday, New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art began began putting 600 catalogs, journals and museum bulletins, 368 of them out-of-print, online. Searchable by title, keyword, publication type, theme or collection, the resource, named MetPublications, increases access to art scholarship, even as its attractive pages and extensive  preview feature may lure online sales of many still in-print titles. Available material dates to only the mid-1960s, but Met Director Thomas Campbell said publications going back to the museum’s founding in 1870 will be added over time.
