New Database for Images....

Through ARTstor, a new library database, you now have access online to approximately 300,000 visual images and their corresponding data; the tools to make active use of those images; and an online environment intended to balance the interests of users with those of content providers. ARTstor documents artistic and historical traditions across many time-periods and cultures and focuses on, but is not limited to, the arts. As a campus wide resource, ARTstor is designed to be used by researchers in fields that do not traditionally use images, as well as by art historians. Low-resolution images can be exported. The images in ARTstor can be used in student papers, theses, and dissertations (provided the dissertations are not distributed widely).

The ARTstor link can be found on the Library's database page and the collection is continually growing. The latest addition is the Native American Art and Culture collection from the Smithsonian Institution. Check it out...
