University of Mississippi Digital Image Database
In Spring 2004, The Department and Art and The Visual Resource Center commenced the Department’s Digital Image Database (UMDID) initiative with the goal of creating a database containting images used for teaching art history. After a year into the digitization process, the results became a searchable FileMakerPro database containing JPEG images for classroom projection.
In Spring 2007 after over 3 years into the project, the UMDID was launched to the web. UMDID.org is accessible to the department and faculty for lectures and research. It contains over 32,000 digital art history images from all different cultures, time periods, and civilizations throughout the ages. Each image is accompanied by relevant information regarding artist, title, medium, date, etc. UMDID is an invaluable tool for the department’s researchers, professors, and students.
If you are an educator and would like more information or to request access to the image database please contact the VRC’s curator: Ross Turner, firstname.lastname@example.org.
