Art Jewelry Forum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 1997 to advocate for the international field of contemporary art jewelry. We do so through education, discourse, appreciation, and support for the field. AJF’s digital library, an archive of exhibition catalogs, books, and other digital media, is available globally to our members: creatives, educators, critics, curators, and others.
These publications have been converted into electronic form from the original print edition with the permission of their copyright holders. This conversion does not constitute a new publication or edition, but merely a facsimile of an existing one. The full copyright remains with the publishers at all times. The publishers may at any time revoke this permission.
These publications are not intended for sale or any commercial use, but for research and educational purposes.
All images and texts are copyrighted and can only be used with permission of both the publisher and artists. Where content taken from these publications is cited in papers or articles, full credit must be given to the print edition—author, title, publisher, year, and page number—via Art Jewelry Forum.
AJF’s library is for research and educational purposes only. AJF suggests that all submissions include a page in the pdf with the author’s full contact information and/or that of the publisher to stimulate connection, research, and proper copyright adherence. If your digital media is available in print form, this page can also be used to encourage direct sales through your institution.
All content available through AJF's digital library will be downloadable through the associated software.
AJF’s library was developed to provide a valuable resource for the art jewelry community. It will be accessible to the public during an introductory period, then to current AJF members only. An AJF member at any level will be given 30-day access to the Library. The minimum membership level to receive 12 months of access to the library will be $10 per month or $120 per year. Please reference the benefits of membership on AJF’s website for more information. Museums that share content to AJF’s digital library will receive a one-year membership to the organization, which includes access to the library. Schools that are sponsors of AJF are welcome to share their access to the digital library with their students and alumni. Once the library becomes accessible only to current AJF members, AJF’s main website will continue to be free and publicly accessible.
If you have physical copies of your digital material that you’d like to donate to AJF to encourage readership and interest in your institution/publication, you’re welcome to send 5 to 10 copies of the book/catalog to:
540 Alabama Street #207
San Francisco, CA 94110
These copies will be used to encourage membership to our nonprofit and may be offered as benefits in crowdfunding campaigns, thank-you gifts to members, and/or other incentives to encourage membership.
