University of Mississippi Digital Image Database

The Department of Art & Art History’s Visual Resource Center created the Digital Image Database (UMDID) initiative with the goal of creating a database containing images used for teaching art history. The results are a searchable FileMakerPro database containing JPG images for classroom projection.
