The online resource for the arts


Good news from VADS…

‘VADS is to upgrade its online image archive after securing funding for a one year project from JISC – a joint committee of the UK further and higher education funding bodies

VADS is based at the Farnham Campus of the University for the Creative Arts, where it has recently attained research centre status within the library. It was founded to provide services to the academic community 11 years ago, and since that time it has built an online collection of more than 100,000 images which are copyright cleared for teaching, learning, and research in the UK.’

 VADS Aims:
* To provide collections of visual arts digital resources and advice for their creation and use
* To preserve visual arts digital resources to ensure their long term use
* To promote good practice for the creation and use of visual arts digital resources
