Abstract

In 2017, The Index of Medieval Art launched a new custom database to better serve 21st century researchers of medieval iconography. This workshop, led by Index specialists Maria Alessia Rossi and Jessica Savage, demonstrates how to use new advanced search options, filters, and browse tools to locate iconographic subjects in the Index. A short presentation will show how the new subject classification network encourages further discovery of the online collection. Workshop participants are encouraged to bring laptops and research questions to the workshop.
