Looking at (Index) Language: A Dive into Taxonomy at the Index of Medieval Art

Tuesday, November 8, 2022, 12:00 pm1:00 pm



Event Description

Did you know that the Index of Medieval Art database offers fifteen browse lists, including terms for medieval patrons, creators, languages, and types of objects? Or that the Index database uses around 25,000 subject headings for iconography in medieval art, including scene titles, names of figures, and representations of objects, and that all these subjects can be explored through our Subject Classification network?

If you have an interest in the versatile uses of language in our taxonomies, join us for a free one-hour workshop on Zoom led by Index Art History Specialists Maria Alessia Rossi and Jessica Savage. Just as the Index browse lists are openly accessible to global users, this workshop is open to anyone interested in learning about Index language standardization practices and preferred terms in Index cataloging.
