Welcome to the new Artstor Digital Library platform

The improved Artstor Digital Library is now available! Dive straight in at library.artstor.org to enjoy the updated look and the new functionality, or read an overview of what’s new.

Updated and new features:

  • The new IIIF image viewer allows you to view images full screen, and a new comparison mode allows you to compare up to 10 images at once while zooming on details.
  • Anyone with a registered account can share image groups, not just those with instructor privileges. Students can easily share image groups with their teachers and classmates.
  • Image groups can bet set to private or institutional (viewable to everyone at your institution). Private image groups can be shared with select people by sharing the URL. Private image groups shared with you will be saved under the “shared with me” header on the image groups page.
  • Image groups can now be shared across institutions via the URL. Any local images (such as those from your Shared Shelf collections) will not be visible to users at other institutions.
  • Advanced search no longer requires a keyword. You can now select multiple criteria such as date, classification, and geography to view all images in Artstor meeting those criteria.
  • Tags replace the folder system.
  • Image groups open directly from the Digital Library home page under the “Image Groups” header.
  • Images open on the detail page (instead of a pop up window), with metadata to the right of the image. You can link directly to this page.
  • Links saved on LibGuides, course websites, etc. will redirect to the new site.
  • The citation generator has been temporarily removed from the site and will return soon.
  • Image detail views saved into groups will revert to the full version of the image. You cannot currently save details to groups. This functionality will return soon.
  • The platform is now mobile-friendly. Save image groups from your iPad!

Artstor Digital Library Feature Changes

The resource Artstor Digital Library is undergoing a refresh including an improved platform and redesigned interface however during the update there are a few changes which may impact existing users:

 

The upload and metadata entry functions for Personal Collections will be paused between June 1st and early September this year. During this time you will be able to share, download, and save your existing images to groups as usual. However, you will not be able to add new images to your Personal Collection or edit any of the text associated with your existing images.

Uploading of OIV presentations into Personal Collections will be retired. If you need to share OIV presentations with students, please convert them to PDFs.

Personal notes and instructor notes are being retired. If you need any information saved in your personal or instructor notes, we recommend copying and pasting this information into your image group descriptions by June 1st.

The citation generator and saved citations will be temporarily removed and added back into the Digital Library after the new release. If you have saved citations that you need, please download them before June 1st.

Saved searches are being retired.

The date filter for search results will be temporarily removed in late May (prior to the release of the new site). It will return, with improvements, as part of the updated site this summer.
