Oxford Grove Art
Review by CCL-EAR Committee Oxford Grove Art contains a strong set of reference material in the visual arts; content is periodically updated, although its parity with editions of the source material is not always clear. The search interface is adequate, with the caveat that students can be led into content that their institution does not own. The product is ADA/Section 508 compliant, but could use improvement to streamline navigation for users with screen readers. Overall, we recommend Oxford Art Online for any community college with Art History courses or other courses requiring research into the visual arts.
