Title: Beautiful Birds: Masterpieces from the Hill Ornithology Collection
Url: https://rmc.library.cornell.edu/ornithology/
Publisher: Cornell University. Library. Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections
Description: This site showcases more than 170 lovely eighteenth- and nineteenth-century ornithological illustrations from books and art works included in or loaned to the Cornell University Library's Hill Ornithology Collection. Users can navigate the online exhibition via a collection of pull-down menus "organized by illustration technique, each with an introduction explaining the technique and also listing famous artists and authors in that medium." Each artist or author's page includes a brief introduction to their work and a large thumbnail image. To browse all of the images in each section, users must select the link at the bottom of that technique's introduction page. The images are offered in three sizes, with a link to bibliographic information. Additional features at the site include a curator's introduction, style comparisons of three different bird illustrations (Bluejays, Cardinals, Hummingbirds), a timeline, a guide to the ornithological collections in the libraries at Cornell University, and a search engine that indexes books and illustrations contained in the exhibition.
