Hermitage Museum Website & Digital Collections

Friday, June 26th, 2009

Today’s The Scout Report had an entry about the Hermitage Museum’s website. Of particular interest to Simulacrum readers will be the Digital Collections that are now available online. It is possible to browse or search the collections. When pulling up the record for an individual work, the image link sometimes breaks, but clicking on the link at the right for the larger images appears to work every time. The larger images are big enough for PowerPoint use. They will also work for loading into your soaMDID personal collection, but they are not big enough for zooming.

Historic Jewelry from New England

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

Through The Scout Report of 13 March 2009, I learned about Historic New England’s online images of their jewelry collection. Going to the checklist page one can see thumbnail images and brief descriptions. Clicking on the thumbnail image brings up a larger image of sufficient size to use for teaching purposes. Some historic portraits of people wearing jewelry are also included.
