ARTStor

University of Washington: ARTStor now available

The ARTStor image database is now available through the UW Libraries. ARTstor is a digital library of nearly one million images in the areas of art, architecture, the humanities, and social sciences with a set of tools to view, present, and manage images for research and pedagogical purposes.

ARTStor is available at http://www.artstor.org, or can be accessed at http://www.artstor.org.offcampus.lib.washington.edu/index.shtml from off-campus (you must log in with your UWNet ID). ARTStor can also be found on the Libraries’ Image Collections page at http://www.lib.washington.edu/types/images/, and in the UW WorldCat and Libraries catalogs.

ARTStor images can be downloaded for use in PowerPoint or other presentation tools, or images can be used within ARTStor’s OIV image presentation tool. ARTStor offers excellent online help documents through their web site at http://help.artstor.org/wiki/index.php/Welcome_to_ARTstor_Help , including live email and phone support, video demonstrations, and printable help documents. You can also contact Jackie Belanger (jbelanger@uwb.edu), Reference & Instruction / Arts & Humanities Librarian, or Denise Hattwig (dhattwig@uwb.edu), Curator, Visual Resources, in the Campus Library with questions about ARTStor.

If you would like to receive updates about ARTStor features and content, and information about training opportunities and other support offered by the Libraries, please email dhattwig@u.washington.edu with “ARTStor update emails” in the header. You will be added to an ARTStor information email list.
