Fab fashion database now on trial

UBC Library now has trial access to an absolutely fabulous new database:  the Berg Fashion Library. Please note that the trial is available until September 23, 2010.

Anchored by the 10-volume Encyclopedia of World Dress and Fashion, the Berg Fashion Library is the first online resource to provide access to interdisciplinary and integrated text, image, and journal content on world dress and fashion, and will be useful to anyone researching or studying fashion, anthropology, art history, history, museum studies and cultural studies.

Key content includes:

* The full text of Encyclopedia of World Dress and Fashion –  the only place the Encyclopedia will be updated.

* E-Book collection: full text of approximately 60 Berg fashion e-books with regular updates bringing in-depth coverage of key topics alongside the breadth of the Encyclopedia.

* An extensive colour image bank, including 3,600 images from the Victoria & Albert Museum’s internationally renowned fashion collection and the print Encyclopedia, many with 360 degree images, and with more images scheduled in the update program.

Enjoy your explorations and be sure to provide feedback via the form on the resource page or directly to UBC Library’s very own fashion icon, Keith Bunnell.
