Visual Resources: An International Journal of Documentation is devoted to the
study of images and their uses. While images of architecture and
works of art constitute its main focus, it also includes other
subjects and contexts in a wide range of formats. Its scope delves
into the past and looks toward the future, revealing how images
have influenced the perception of art and how the interpretation
of images conditions and enhances academic disciplines such as
archaeology, history, and particularly art and architectural history.
Visual Resources explores how visual language is structured and
visual meaning communicated and also illustrates how picture collections
are acquired, organized, indexed, and preserved. VR examines early
attempts to document the visual, reports on the state of visual
resources, assesses the effect of electronic technology on current
and future uses, and provides a platform for reporting innovative
ways to organize and access visual information – while aiming to
increase the recognition and appreciation of visual documentation.
