 Online resource: The Centre for Research and Documentation (CR+D) database
The CR+D database is an important electronic digital media arts research tool. A repository for documentation, international projects of the Daniel Langlois Foundation and various CR+D techwatch and research activities, the database contains extensive information on the history, works and practices associated with the media, electronic and digital arts.

The following are a few examples of database usage:

A search conducted in the EVENT module, for example, allows a list of audio art events to be produced.

Each entry on the list of the more than 100 events displayed provides access to a data block on the particular event and allows you to research a participant, exhibited work or document associated with the event. For example, go to the data block on the BitStreams exhibition presented at the Whitney Museum in 2001.

The DOCUMENT module allows you to search for resources in both the CR+D collection and on the Web. For example, a search on the Pockets Full of Memories project by George Legrady produces a list of documents available at the CR+D, on the DLF Web site and elsewhere on the Internet.

Researchers interested in a particular artist can access a data block via the INDIVIDUAL module, which displays all items related to the artist in question. The data block on Jim Campbell, for example, contains links to 260 documents on the artist, 21 documents by the artist, 61 works by the artist, and 105 events in which the artist participated.

Clicking on the link to the artist's 61 works leads you to a list of these works. Clicking on the title of a work produces a data block on that work, which includes information on accessible images or video.
