how the resource shelf works—summary
The Shelf contains two sections: 1) the Catalog,
and 2) Resource
Reviews. No special knowledge is required to use either section.
The Catalog is implemented as an automated table which contains a
wide variety of arts-related citations, each one describing a single
resource or reference work. With the help of the table's automatic
features, you use the Catalog to identify just those resources that
match your arts interests. Once you identify them, you use the table
to help decide which ones you want to access. Then you use the table
to access them.
With the help of the Catalog you can automatically search for arts
citations containing keywords you specify. You can sort
citations that result from searches, print lists of citations, and manipulate information about
listed arts resources and references in a variety of other ways.
Some of the resources cited in the Catalog are accessible via the
Internet; others are not:

Reviews or is located on a page at another web site, the Catalog
