Old Media

Old Media is a personal term used to class all media prior to the introoduction of electric and electronic methods. In Library Systems a number of these are classed as Separate Art Forms. In searches for authors prior to 1600, whose work entails manuscripts, we have the category Books Manuscripts. The SUMS demo on Perspective illustrates this approach. In searches for authors whose work entails pictures (art, machines) as well as books, we have the category Books Pictures. The SUMS demo on Leonardo illustrates this approach.
