If you’re anything like me, you’re trying to build a professional-level FTC e-resource collection on a pint-sized budget. I’m wondering if there’s a solution… Would you be willing to make a list of the FTC-related resources you have, and a dream-big, deep-pockets wish list of what you’d like to have? Please include all possible resources including, but not limited to:
History & Reference Resources: Bloomsbury Fashion Central / Berg Fashion Library / Fashion Photography Archive
Trade Journals: WWD Digital, WWD Archive (ProQuest), BoF, etc.
Trend Forecasting Databases: Fashion Snoops, WGSN, Doneger Online, Trend Council, etc.
Streaming Videos: Fashion Studies Online: The Videofashion Library (Alexander Street), University of Fashion (video tutorials), etc.
Journal Archives: Intellect Fashion Collection, Textile Technology Complete, etc.
Magazine Archives: Women’s Magazine Archive, Vogue Archive, Harper’s Bazaar Archive
Business Resources: Plunkett Research E-Division, Global Apparel Markets, EDITED
My thanks those who have already responded privately to my previous request, notifying me of consortia that serve our colleges and universities – particularly those with fashion programs. (If you have not yet responded, please do so: firstname.lastname@example.org.) As you may have guessed, I’m hoping to find a means to make developing our e-resource collections easier, and cheaper, for all of us.
Hope to see you at ARLIS/NA 2017!
