As a result, a slew of user-friendly, free online applications have been created which enable users to create their own information graphics. Here are five such tools that I think are particularly valuable:
The Guggenheim Puts 109 Free Modern Art Books Online Back in January, 2012, we mentioned that the Guggenheim (the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed modern art museum in NYC) had put 65 art catalogues on the web, all free of charge. We’re happy to report that, between then and now, the number of free texts has grown to 109. Published between 1937 and 1999, the art books/catalogues offer an intellectual and visual introduction to the work of Alexander Calder, Edvard Munch, Francis Bacon, Gustav Klimt & Egon Schiele, Fernand Léger, and Kandinsky. Plus there are other texts (e.g., Masterpieces of Modern Art and Abstract Expressionists Imagists) that tackle meta movements and themes. Anyone interested in the history of the Guggenheim will want to spend time with a collection called “The Syllabus.”

Policy Templates - Online Safety Services The SWGfL Template Online Safety Policies have been adopted by local authorities, schools and academies across the UK, and are acknowledged as good practice documents. The latest versions have been updated following review and support by Online Safety professionals. The templates provide guidance, an indication of what should be included and a flexible approach allowing each school or organisation to challenge, consider and debate. The result will be your very own Online Safety Policy that whilst built on foundation blocks, includes content that makes it unique and relevant for your school or organisation. The SWGfL Template Policies consist of an overall Online Safety Policy and a series of appendices with more detailed template policies and forms.
Best Practices for Content Curation for Nonprofits at Social Media for Nonprofits Conference On January 30th, I’m speaking at the Social Media for Nonprofits in New York City. (You can get a discount of $20 off the registration by entering the code “Beth” when you sign up although the discount only works on the more expensive tickets). This year, since content curation, is a social media competency that I’m focusing in my own learning and teaching , I’ll be doing a conversational presentation on the topic. Robin Good, one of the best content curators on the planet, will join me via skype from Italy. In preparation, I’m doing a pre-recorded skype interview with Robin as a back up for a live interview. As is my presenting style, this will be an interactive session.
The Collection Online When The Met was founded in 1870, it owned not a single work of art. Through the combined efforts of generations of curators, researchers, and collectors, our collection has grown to represent more than 5,000 years of art from across the globe—from the first cities of the ancient world to the works of our time.
