ADAM (the Art, Design, Architecture & Media Information Gateway)

The ADAM Project created a subject-based information gateway service that provided access to quality-assured Internet resources in the following areas:

The 3-year JISC funding for ADAM was awarded to a consortium of 10 institutions, each with a vested interest in the creation of the service, as part of the Access to Network Resources initiative of the Electronic Libraries Programme. The project ran from 1 December 1995.

The consortium was led by the Surrey Institute of Art & Design, and partners included: University of Northumbria, Glasgow School of Art, Coventry University Art and Design Library, Middlesex University, The National Art Library at the Victoria & Albert Museum, Southampton Institute of Higher Education, The Tate Gallery, University of West of England, and Winchester School of Art.

For further information on the project, see: Gill, T. (1996). 'A Project Called ADAM', Ariadne, issue 3.

All ADAM resources were integrated into the Jisc-funded Intute service.
