The University of Bergen now has a site subscription to Rhizome! That means that anyone (any one person at a time) on the University’s network can browse Rhizome’s art base and other information without paying an individual membership. Rhizome has a great database of art on the net, a good system for linking the website and community directory to the mailing lists, and there are useful discussions about the network in general too. They’d like more site subscriptions – perhaps your university library should be getting one?
There are other ways in. You can pay $5 a year, or you can visit on Fridays, when access is free.
