Encyclopedia of New Media
Much of the documentation of video or multimedia art occurs in the form of film stills or photographs. If you've ever been frustrated by this, the Encyclopedia of New Media might be a great resource for you. In conjunction with the Centre Pompidou, the Encyclopedia of New Media is an online collection of video and multimedia artists. Under each artist, there is a brief biography, examples of work, and a bibliography. The exciting part of the site is that most of the work listed for each artist is available either as a quicktime, real media player or flash video.
The site also has an extensive general bibliography page that makes for a great resource for students and faculty interested in new media topics. The listing includes dozens of links to other video resources online.
