Upcoming Changes To Artstor
Exciting news–Artstor will be releasing an improved Digital Library this summer. Improvements 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
The new platform will also include several changes to existing features:
Personal notes and instructor notes are being retired. If you need any information saved in your personal or instructor notes, we recommend copying and pasting this information into your image group descriptions by June 1st.
The citation generator and saved citations will be temporarily removed and added back into the Digital Library after the new release. If you have saved citations that you need, please download them before June 1st.
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.
We will be pausing 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.
Uploading of OIV presentations into personal collections will be retired. If you need to share OIV presentations with students, please convert them to PDFs (instructions here).
