New online resource: ARTstor

The Libraries new online resource ARTstor brings artistic images from a variety of countries, collections, eras, and styles to the computer screens of Rutgers researchers.

ARTstor is a digital image library of approximately 700,000 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. Created by a non-profit organization funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, ARTstor digitizes and provides high-quality images from numerous museums, academic institutions, and private foundations.

ARTstor can be searched by keyword, geography, classification, and collections. Users can download images for use in Powerpoint presentations, Keynote, and other programs for classroom instruction and related activities. Please see artstor.org for further information on permitted and prohibited uses.

Users can access ARTstor from the front page of the Libraries website, by following the path: Research Resources > Indexes and Databases > Arts and Humanities > General Arts and Humanities > ARTstor
