Google Cultural Institute

Google has teamed up with many of the Worlds leading museums and galleries to provide access to a fantastic range of art and craft images and information.  The level of detail for the photography is such that you can see the individual brushstrokes on paintings such as Brueghel’s The Tower of Babel!  See below.

A brilliant site for Visual Arts students, indeed for anyone with an interest in the material cultures of humanity. Remember we have thousands of Art books just search the catalogue here to find out what we hold.

Exciting new addition to our Athens database collection!

The LRC is very pleased to announce that we now provide access to JSTOR!

The database is available from Athens and provides links to thousands of journal titles, covering 50 plus subjects.  This site would benefit A1-A2 students, especially those completing the Extended Project Qualification and staff trying to access pedagogical research.  If you have any questions please contact a member of the LRC team.


TED talks on YouTube

If you have not had the opportunity to take a look at TED then you don’t know what you are missing!

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

Mind map software

Mind mapping is an excellent way to release ideas, build connections and structure arguments or presentations. Bubbl us is a great online mind mapping software that I use on a regular basis. Registering for a free account allows you to create and save up to four mind maps.
