ARTstor

The Jessup Library is proud to announce ARTstor, a digital collection of approximately one million images. This interdisciplinary resource offers images from the areas of art, architecture, the humanities and the social sciences. The collections are organized by topic and include: African-American studies, anthropology, design and decorative studies, Middle Eastern studies, and theatre and dance.

The images in ARTstor are saveable as JPEGs and may be inserted into PowerPoint presentations or Word documents. Each image also provides information necessary to cite it properly. (Double click on an image to open it in a new window, click the "i" for citation information.)

Unfortunately, ARTstor is not yet available from off campus. Hopefully it will be available soon; check back here for updates.

Please take a look at this wonderful resource, and again, if you have questions, just let us know!
