Howard Besser's T-Shirt Database

While the Berkeley Digital Library SunSITE has been home to a wide variety of searchable image collections, the recent addition of a T-Shirt Database is both a demonstration in cataloging realia as well an interesting glimpse at popular culture as depicted through t-shirt graphics. This database was constructed by Howard Besser's library school students and provides access to over 530 t-shirt images, searchable by title, artist, subject, description, and background color. Users may also search the database by selecting from a list of over 80 subjects, ranging from Academic to Pop Culture and War. Search results include thumbnail images of the t-shirts, catalog record information, as well as a link to larger views of each image. Howard Besser is Associate Professor at UCLA's School of Education and Information Studies.
