A Resource You Should Know About: Artstor & Its New Platform

The Artstor Digital Library is an image database with the most comprehensive collection of images for educational and scholarly use. There are more than two million images from 280 collections. Subject areas include Anthropology, Art History, Fashion, Literature, Religion, Theater, History, and more!  
In July, the Artstor organization released the new Artstor Digital Library, which offers users a cleaner design, smoother navigation and streamlined features. The new platform includes many improvements and additional features, including:

  • Full screen viewer & comparison mode for up to 10 images (from IIIF, the International Image Interoperability Framework, community-based open-source software);
  • All registered users ability to share image groups
  • The platform is now mobile friendly
  • Advanced Search no longer requires a keyword, allowing users to search by other criteria alone such as date or geography

To learn more about the new features and updates, watch the New Artstor Platform video, visit the Artstor Digital Library homepage, or under “What’s New?” on Artstor’s Digital Library Support page.
