Given how many tools we covered in the morning, I thought it might be helpful to provide a list of these, with links, so you can revisit them later at your leisure. You’ll see that there are a few extra tools that were mentioned today but not explored.
We started by looking at university and external resources:
Rachel Jillions of the University of the Arts London has just sent through details of this conference which might be of interest to researchers in Art and Design.
