What is ARTstor?|
ARTstor is a new, cross-disciplinary image database. It offers collections of approximately 400,000 art images and descriptive information covering art, architecture and archeology. ARTstor's accompanying software tools will support a wide range of pedagogical and research uses including: viewing and analyzing images through features such as zooming and panning, saving groups of images online for personal or shared uses, and creating and delivering presentations both online and offline.
Access to ARTstor is through the U of M Libraries Homepage (www.lib.umn.edu). Choose "A" from the alphabetical list for Indexes and Databases, and then scroll down to select ARTstor.
Before you begin
Make sure your computer has the following Technical Requirements to operate ARTstor.
Register with ARTstor
All students, staff and faculty at the University of Minnesota can use ARTstor to search, browse, open images and analyze the image data. In order to save images into groups and use the higher-level features, regular users of ARTstor will want to register. You can register easily on the main Search and Browse Images page of ARTstor, and you will be asked for a valid e-mail address and a password. We recommend that you follow good security practice and choose a password that is different from those you use to access other systems. Do not use your U of M password!
Faculty and instructors are eligible for a higher level of access that will allow for creating Image Groups that can be shared with classes and colleagues. To obtain a password, contact Deborah Ultan Boudewyns(firstname.lastname@example.org or 612-625-6438) at Wilson Library.
For Detailed Help
