FTC E-Resource Subscriptions: Share your reality and dream

Greetings colleagues!


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

WindowsWear Pro


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:  sjley@pima.edu.)  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!

Sandra Ley (FTC SIG Founder)
