UIMA Digital Collection recognized

Last week, The Iowa Digital Library’s collection for the UI Museum of Art was named ALA’s Digital Library of the Week!  See the sidebar in this week’s American Libraries Direct or the news item in ALA’s ilovelibraries.org.

The permanent collections of the University of Iowa Museum of Art contain more than 12,000 objects, from masterworks of European and American Art of the 20th century to a world-renowned collection of traditional African Art. Currently, the UIMA Digital Collection features over 5,100 of the museum’s 12,000 objects; the rest of the holdings will be added in the near future.

More items have been added to the collection since the review was written, so instead of “over 5,100” it’s now “more than 9,800.”
