Who To Follow On Instagram…The Costume Institute Library

instagram_costumeinstitutelibrary

 

Sometimes it can be very hard figuring out who to follow (even harder trying to sift through hundreds of accounts to find one that might actually inspire you).

 

The Costume Institute Library (@costumeinstitutelibrary) is a great surprise because a library within a museum would typically be the last type of institution you’d expect to find using a social media tool such as Instagram to their advantage.

 

Several photos are posted each day from The Costume Reference Library at The MET Museum of Art. Photos are taken daily by Librarian Julie LĂȘ.

 

How clever to take something that would usually be quite private, and make it so easily accessible to many.

    It’s our “go-to” for design inspiration. The next best thing is being there in person :)

    I think you would enjoy the Facebook page for the Cornell Costume and Textile Collection if you haven’t seen it yet. They have some beautiful pieces.

    Another great person to follow from the Met is the director Tom Campbell. @thomaspcampbell

    Lots of museums are doing cool things on Instagram! Some of the Met’s other libraries have great accounts, too. Check out the @risdmuseum for more art and costume & textile inspiration.

    “…is a great surprise because a library within a museum would typically be the last type of institution you’d expect to find using a social media tool such as Instagram to their advantage.”

    Nope…

    Librarians, archivists, and museum workers are some of the most technologically savvy people out there. They are also some of the most stylish. Libraries are doing great things nowadays.
