The Library

Upcoming changes to Artstor

Changes to Artstor

Enhancements and alterations are being made to the Digital Library this summer on an updated platform. 

Changes to existing features

The citation generator and saved citations will be temporarily removed and added back into the Digital Library after the new release.

Personal notes and instructor notes are being retired.

Uploading of OIV presentations into personal collections will be retired. If you need to share OIV presentations please convert them to PDFs. For instructions on how to covert OIV presentations to PDFs please go here.

The upload and metadata entry functions for personal collections between June 1st and early September. During this time you will be able to share, download, and save your existing images to groups as usual. You will not be able to add new images to your personal collection or edit any of the text associated with your existing images.

Saved searches are being retired.

The date filter for search results will be temporarily removed in late May (prior to the release of the new site). It will return, with improvements, as part of the updated site this summer.

Passwords will now be case sensitive. Existing passwords must be entered in all lowercase; any edited or new passwords are case sensitive.

Groups that were in Password-protected folders will need to be reshared to be viewed by others at your institution. (NOTE: All of the Groups you have created in the Artstor Digital Library will be unchanged through this transition. There is no action required to retain your Groups.)


These will include:

  • A new full screen IIIF image viewer with side-by-side comparison mode (no pop-ups or Flash required)
  • Simplified image group sharing: all registered users (previously limited to faculty) will be able to share image groups with other users at your institution
  • Increased web accessibility for users with disabilities
  • Shorter URLs for easier linking in LibGuides, course websites, emails, and more
  • Mobile friendly
