Library Research Guide
Artstor is a digital image library of collections contributed by museums, associations, libraries, and archives. Files can be saved and downloaded for educational purposes.
The first time you use Artstor, you need to create an account. To download images, use your Artstor work folder, and create image groups, you must be logged into your Artstor account. Also, make sure your pop-up blocker is turned off. Artstor uses pop up windows.
On the left side of the Artstor search screen, you will see options for keyword searching and for browsing.
Browsing is presented as a series of drop-down menus and options include by classification, collection, or geography.
Try typing an artist or designer's name, a work of art, or style of design into the search box
The advanced search offers greater flexibility—if you do not see this option, click on the Artstor logo (top left) to return to the main search screen. Below Search you will see the Advanced Search option.
To download images from Artstor, you must be logged into your Artstor account.
Downloading or exporting are the best ways to get high-resolution versions of images to print.
