    Designinform ReVIEW, one of three databases comprising designinform, has made the first ten journals of what will be hundreds of thousands of pages of late nineteenth and early twentieth century European and American art journals available and searchable online.

    ReVIEW plans to digitize art journals with 100% OCR text accuracy, and all of the journals made available by ReVIEW will be cross-searchable with it's other databases: Design Abstracts Retrospective (DAR) and Design ProFILES - both of which are also ongoing projects.

    To browse and/or search any of the designinform databases, you can follow the Designinform link on the Ricker Library homepage, or click here.
