Resource Library is believed to be the first and most comprehensive Internet-based publication devoted to American representational art. As the publication includes aspects of both a popular magazine and an open access scholarly journal, it maintains a balance between both emphases. Resource Library is published as a complimentary public service without a subscription fee by its nonprofit owner and publisher Traditional Fine Arts Organization. Resource Library’s content time line spans the Colonial period to the present and covers significant artistic achievement in every state of the Union, while building an interconnected body of knowledge including, but not limited to, the relationships of American artists to their teachers in foreign nations and America, the history of American art centers, schools and ateliers, and the evolution of methods and styles of artistic expression. Resource Library is of service to a broad spectrum of individuals in terms of intellectual development, physical constraints, and education. It is 100% electronic. No paper copy is distributed. Resource Library welcomes for complimentary publication consideration submissions of:
* media releases plus relevant checklists, wall panel and label text, docent guide text and gallery guide text for exhibitions,
* abridged and whole speeches and lectures,
* other materials.
