Discover a unique and transformative online resource
Developed and maintained by Yale University Press (YUP), the A&AePortal is a unique digital platform offering a curated selection of important art and architectural history titles, along with books in related disciplines (i.e., visual and material culture, classics, and religion). Its library comprises out-of-print, backlist, new, and born-digital books from YUP and various publishing partners, with some 50 books being added each year.
With students expecting content to be available digitally, the A&AePortal is an essential resource: 80% of its content is not available elsewhere in a digital format. It also offers a wealth of possibilities as a teaching and research tool, allowing chapters to be assigned for course use or students to search by image to find related content for assignments. The A&AePortal editorial team has replaced many black-and-white images in older books with high-quality color files and added extensive metadata to all titles to create robust search functionality. Related content can easily be found at the chapter level, and references and footnotes are linked to other books on the site, all of which enable students to engage in active critical thinking when using the resource.
