FREE: Slides from Brown University's Library

Hello, I'm the art librarian at Brown University and I'm currently dismantling the former Art Slide Library. I'd like to offer the slides to any artists and art teachers who might be interested. I have 300,000 35mm glass-mounted slides that cover the prehistoric era to around the year 2000. I know these could be useful not only for teaching the history of art, but perhaps of more interest to use in studio art projects. I also have mounted and unmounted black and white documentary photographs of art and architecture, a clipping file, and assorted other bits and pieces. The artists must be able to come pick them up at Brown and they must do so as soon as possible, as I need to close down the Slide Library before the summer ends. Would this be something you could share with your mailing list or blog? They may contact me for an appointment: email
