Arkyves is both a unique database of images and texts and a meeting place for everyone who wants to study imagery and publish about it. All visual and textual sources are made accessible with the help of the multilingual vocabulary for cultural content of the Iconclass system. By using this system it has been made possible to find and retrieve images and texts from various sources on a specific topic.
By using Arkyves it is currently possible to access almost 900.000 images, texts, etc. from libraries and museums in many countries among them the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the Netherlands Institute for Art History (RKD), the Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenbüttel, and the university libraries of Milan, Utrecht and Glasgow . More collections will follow in the near future. The database contains a link to the images which are available in open access.
Arts and Sciences collections I-XV. Notable titles include: The Journal of the History of Ideas, The Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes, History and Theory, Modern Language Notes, The Sixteenth Century Journal, Renaissance Quarterly, Representations and Speculum. The journals can be browsed by discipline. Accessible through Warburg networked computers and remotely for Warburg staff and students with SAS/Senate House Library cards.
