With Mellon Support, Smithsonian to Create National Art Database
The Smithsonian American Art Museum is leading a group of 14 institutions from around the country in an effort to build a shared, and searchable, online database that could spur research and scholarship about American art.
One of the first in the nation to make its entire collection available through Linked Open Data (or LOD), SAAM received a grant from the Andrew M. Mellon Foundation to create the American Art Collective to expand the project to other museums. . .
