Links

There are many resources and portals devoted to art history and archives, and there seems little point in duplicating their work. This page therefore provides links to a few of the more established sites which contain relevant material, as a starting point for those who wish to pursue links to other resources. Those which are not in themselves portals also contain pages of links which may be of interest.

All repositories mentioned in the Register can be accessed via Archon, whilst there are links to the websites of the Register's partners and funders on this site's partners & acknowledgements page.

Sites are listed in alphabetical order.
