Description designinform consists of three databases: Design Abstracts Retrospective (DAR), Design ProFILES, and ReVIEW. Design Abstracts Retrospective is a new ongoing abstracting and indexing service that aims to cover many of the most important design and applied arts journals and annuals published during the twentieth century. Design ProFILES is a dictionary of design and designers. It includes profiles of every single designer, architect, craftsperson, studio, workshop, etc. whose work is discussed or illustrated in the journals and yearbooks covered by DAR. ReVIEW is an ongoing project to digitize many of the most important decorative and fine arts journals published in Europe and the USA during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
