Alternative Titles
AAEL Lantern Slide Collection
Description

The Art, Architecture and Engineering Library Lantern Slide Collection is a collection of approximately 17,000 lantern slides of architectural and geographic topics. Lantern slides are glass slides that were used from the late nineteenth century through the mid-twentieth century. They are made of two thin panes of glass that measure 3" X 4 1/4" or 3" X 3". Usually the slide is composed of a layer of emulsion laid on one pane of glass and covered by the other pane, but sometimes there is actually a layer of film sandwiched between the glass panes.

The name BHA has been used informally to refer to a group of databases: RAA, RILA, BHA, and IBA. The data available on the Getty Web site comprises two of these databases: BHA and RILA. BHA (Bibliography of the History of Art/Bibliographie d'histoire de l'art) covers the years 1990-2007; the Getty Web version includes all records with abstracts in French or English and all subject terms in French and English.  RILA (Répertoire de la litterature de l'art) covers 1975-1989.  At present, the Getty has no plans to add RAA (Répertoire d'art et d'archéologie), which covers 1973-1989.  IBA (International Bibliography of Art), covering 2008 to the present, is a separate subscription-only database from ProQuest that is not included on this free website provided by Getty.
