THE CHALLENGE – More auction houses are choosing to publish their catalogs on-line. The digital catalog may be the only record of the sale. The goal of this project is the preservation of these resources for future reference.
The Frick Art Reference Library (FARL) currently has 137 active subscriptions for auction catalogs. The websites for all of these were the focus of the analysis for the “Reframing Collection for a Digital Age: A Preparatory Study for Collecting and Preserving Web-Based Art Research Materials,”.
