The artists’ directory is a free self-subscribed searchable data base of Maine artists and arts organizations that allows interested parties to find specific entries in a timely fashion. As a promotional tool this directory can form the basis of an artist’s social network. It allows the inclusion of three external links to websites or social networking sites, three links to video samples and two links to audio samples. Artists are also able to add up to five images, include biographical information, provide contact details, and share a whole host of other useful content.
Visitors to the directory can now search this cultural directory by name, keyword, category, discipline and by county. Once searches have been conducted, users are able to create an online compilation of their favorite search results, and ultimately print or save them in a booklet form.
