Rock Art Studies Database to Move
For years, the Rock Art Studies (RAS) Database project has been one of the core research contributions accomplished by Bay Area Rock Art Research Association (BARARA), alongside of Paul Freeman's video archive, and the BARA Archive at the Bancroft Library. The Bancroft has hosted the RAS database for the past thirteen years, and now the project will pass on to the Museum of Northern Arizona, in Flagstaff. Leigh Marymor will continue on as the project's compiler and has been appointed by the Museum Director as a Research Associate in the Department of Anthropology and will help raise the funds for the required website development at MNA.
The updated version of the RAS database when launched this winter/spring will contain over 34,000 citations to the World's rock art literature, it will be 15% larger than the version now running on the Bancroft Library website, and will it will continue to be available as an open access research tool to rock art researchers, students and the public.
If you would like to make a contribution, you can mail it directly to the Museum, simply mark your letter and check "Rock Art Studies Database project" and the funds will find their way to the right place.
