Title: Visual Arts Data Service (VADS)
Url: https://vads.ac.uk/
Description: VADS, part of the UK Arts & Humanities Data Service (AHDS), was established to create a searchable, online archive of digital resources for use by the visual arts community, especially those in higher education, and "to establish and promote good practice in the creation, management and preservation of digital resources through an advisory, training and publications programme." Recently redesigned, the VADS site now offers online access to three collections: the excellent Imperial War Museum Art Collection, Other Educated Persons: Art in East London 1972-1999, and Documentary Photography: Jacob Riis (actually a Computer Assisted Learning program that requires a Windows machine). Visitors to the site will also find the full text of the recent Creating Digital Resources for the Visual Arts: Standards and Good Practice. Co-authored with the Technical Advisory Service for Images (TASI), the Guide "highlights examples of current practice in the creation of digital information in the visual arts domain, and makes recommendations for good practice in data creation, collection, description, delivery and preservation." The site features several additional resources offering training and advice for higher education users involved in the creation, use, and preservation of digital resources. While still rather modest in size and scope, major additions are promised for the future, and interested users will certainly want to follow the development of the VADS site.
