The Visual Resources Center has created two step-by-step guides on how to use RDID, the RISD Digital Image Database: a faculty guide and a student guide. Both have in-depth instructions on how to browse and search our digital collections, how to download images for RISD projects, and how to view the RDID slideshows. Be sure to let us know what you think of the guides, and help us improve them.

This is a summary of the most recent websites we have added to our del.ici.ous collection of bookmarks, organized by subject.
Today is the official launch of the World Digital Library, a joint project between the Library of Congress and UNESCO which creates an “easily-accessible collection of the world’s cultural riches that would tell the stories and highlight the achievements of all countries and cultures.” The library currently holds material in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, Spanish and Portuguese, with digital images of culturally significant material from all over the world, including manuscripts, maps, rare books, musical scores, recordings, films, prints, photographs, and architectural drawings. All images are available for download for educational purposes, and the quality of the downloads very high. The site is really easy to navigate, so….give it a try!
