LOOKING FOR IMAGES?

FADISX (Fine Art Digital Imaging System) is a content management system designed for the teaching, studying and researching of art, architecture and visual culture. FADIS combines the digital management of electronic resources with a courseware system and provides an intuitive interface that reflects higher educational teaching needs. The goal of FADIS is the creation of a shared common repository amongst participating institutions. FADIS is currently free to any participating institution contributing content to the collection. As most institutions with slide collections are now faced with the need to digitize and manage their transparency collections, FADIS provides an immediate solution along with a sophisticated toolset familiar to instructors teaching with visual material. There are no technical requirements for participating in FADIS, we offer to house and maintain digital assests and there are no server-side requirements or technical expertise required. We do expect participating institutions to manage their digital assests and user base. We will provide training and any technical help required.

In addition to managing digital image files, FADIS also delivers video and audio content. We are actively videotaping artists talks, lectures and colloquia and adding these to the collection. The current repository is over 140,000 digital objects.

University of Toronto
FADIS is available to all students, faculty and staff on all three campuses at the University of Toronto. Departments interested in employing FADIS as an image management system and teaching tool should contact Gordon Belray at Information Technology Services, University of Toronto Libraries. FADIS uses UTORAuth for authentication.

Conceived and developed by Gordon Belray for the University of Toronto Libraries, the Department of Fine Art, University of Toronto.
