The Library has entered into a trial of Artstor, running through the end of the Fall 2022 semester: December 16, 2022

Shows the Artstor homepage with search bar, images, and login prompt.

What is Artstor? 

Artstor is a database that features over 2 million images from museums, archives, libraries, scholars, and artists, which have all been cleared for educational and research use. "Scholars can examine wide-ranging material such as Native American art from the Smithsonian, treasures from the Louvre, and panoramic, 360-degree views of the Hagia Sophia in a single, easy-to-use resource" (Artstor, n.d.). During the trial, Artstor images will also appear directly through image searching within JSTOR

To take advantage of all the features Artstor has to offer during the trial, you will need to create a personal account. Please keep in mind the library is participating in a temporary trial, and the Library cannot guarantee this will become a permanent resource. See the video below for instructions on creating a personal account. Note: You are not required to subscribe to newsletters and promotions or surveys in order to create a login.
