Resources for Review: We seek reviewers for the following resources.
**The snippets below are taken from each resource's web page and are not necessarily the opinions of the M&T Reviews Co-Editors.
ACI Online Art Books "The Art Canada Institute is a non-profit research organization based at Massey College, University of Toronto. Founded in 2012, the ACI is the only national institution whose mandate is to promote the study of an inclusive multi-vocal Canadian art history to as broad an audience as possible, in both English and French, within Canada and internationally. The ACI works with more than 50 of Canada's leading art historians, curators, and visual culture experts who are dedicated to the creation of authoritative original content on the people, themes, and topics that have defined Canadian art history."
Anno Tate "AnnoTate is a transcription tool developed to enable volunteers to read and transcribe the personal papers of British-born and émigré artists, including Josef Herman, Barbara Hepworth and Kurt Schwitters. Drawn from the world's largest archive of British Art - Tate Archive - participants can help to provide full text transcriptions of handwritten documents, helping to reveal the inspiration and stories behind some of the greatest works of the past century."
ArchiteXX "ARCHITEXX is an independent, unaffiliated organization for women in architecture that seeks to transform the profession of architecture by BRIDGING THE ACADEMY AND PRACTICE.  We are a cross-generational group of academics and practitioners.  We believe that seeds established in the academy and adopted in practice, are outdated models which perpetuate myths and unsustainable trends in the personal, private, and workplace group experience and public, client perception."
