New & Free: The Getty Research Portal™
For us garden historians, and for that matter, art historians generally, here is a great new and FREE resource. The Getty Research Portal™is, to quote the homepage, ' an online search platform providing global access to digitized art history texts in the public domain. Through this multilingual, multicultural union catalog, scholars can search and download complete digital copies of publications for the study of art, architecture, material culture, and related fields.'
And dont forget that the Biodiversity Heritage Library also has a huge resource of books and periodicals to download, also for FREE.
