Berg Fashion Library wins The Charleston Advisor’s Readers’ Choice Award!

The redesigned Berg Fashion Library site has been named Most Improved Product from The Charleston Advisor “Best and Worst” Readers’ Choice Awards. The Charleston Report notes:

“Since moving to Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, the new Berg Fashion Library is getting rave reviews from librarians and users. It has a cleaner interface and is much more navigable. The service has integrated text and image content on fashion and dress around the world, from the past to the present.”

“Bloomsbury Publishing has given educational design reference powerhouse, Berg Fashion Library a wonderful new look with a visually-pleasing and easy to navigate platform. Still in its initial launch stage, the Berg Fashion Library content is more accessible than ever with links to key resources included with their foundation resource, ‘Berg Encyclopedia of World Dress and Fashion,’ visitors can browse lesson plans, biblioguides, and an information-packed timeline. We are looking forward to their next platform release, Fashion Photography Archive!”
Lucy Bellamy, Head Librarian, Education Services, FIDM


“A subscription to the archive includes access to much more than just the images, even though these in of themselves are an incredibly rich resource ... What I also love about the resource is the layout, which clearly shows you the image with details categorised to the left, many of which you can click on to access related content.”

“The work of the independent publisher Bloomsbury, the new online archive features everything from top designers’ graduate shows to candid shots of original supermodels like Naomi, Kate and Helena ... Bloomsbury’s FPA is a fully-searchable and meticulously indexed digital resource that's being billed as a ‘treasure trove’ for students, designers and fashion historians.”
