ARTstor Digital Library

The institution recently licensed a new online resource — ARTstor Digital Library.

ARTstor Digital Library makes accessible nearly 1.4 million images for teaching and research (commercial use is prohibited under the license agreement).

ARTstor offers images of collections from hundreds of museums, artists, artists’ estates, photographers, scholars, special collections, and photo archives. Collections serve the interdisciplinary teaching and research needs of students and teachers and offers visual materials in the arts, humanities, and sciences.

Authorized Calhoun users (current employees and currently enrolled students), can locate ARTstor Digital Library on the Library Web site among the list of ‘Top Databases’, the Databases by Subject Page, and the Databases by Vendor Page.

ARTstor Digital Library is accessible on both campuses from all networked computers. Access ‘off campus’ requires authentication – a Username (Student/Employee Calhoun ID number) and Password (last name).
