10 Artistic Apps for Art History

10 Artistic Apps for Art History | Libraries & Museums | Scoop.it


The world’s best art museums are the ideal place to study art history. Unfortunately, visiting some of the world’s preeminent museums to study art history is not always possible. Museums such as the National Gallery in London, the Getty Museum and the Louvre give you a chance to browse some of their collections through interactive apps. These artistic apps, along with other apps highlighting famous works of art and art movements are a must-have for art history teachers and students.

Great post, but rather than using all of these apps you can just use the Artsnapper Application. It is launching in September and it is a based location application that lets you discover art around you. Take a look http://artsnapper.com/

HintMe: a Shared Mobile Museum Platform on Twitter | Libraries & Museums | Scoop.it

HintMe is a shared mobile platform with the aim of opening up museums’ collections by making content re-useable and freely sharable. At the same time, the platform has the potential to increase user engagement with the museum, its artwork, and between visitors themselves.

Book Traces | Find unique copies of old library books

Book Traces | Find unique copies of old library books | Libraries & Museums | Scoop.it

Thousands of old library books bear fascinating traces of the past. Readers wrote in their books, and left notes, pictures, letters, flowers, locks of hair, and other things between their pages. We need your help identifying them because many are in danger of being discarded as libraries go digital. Books printed between 1820 and 1923 are at particular risk.  Help us prove the value of maintaining rich print collections in our libraries.
