February 23: Google Earth & ARTstor

11:00 - 12:00
Bass Library L01 (lower level of the library)

Google Earth has many uses within the classroom, but can be especially powerful when coupled with institutional collections and resources. Mia Genoni, Mellon Special Collection Humanities Postdoctoral Fellow & Lecturer in the History of Art, will present on using Google Earth with ARTstor, a digital library of images licensed by the Yale Library for the course Monuments of Naples: City and Self. Google Earth and ARTstor together enhance teaching across a range of subjects including architecture, urbanism, painting, and even sculpture. She will be joined by one of her students, Rachel Cooke, who will discuss the impact of Google Earth and ARTstor on her learning in the course.
