Artstor brings together more than 2 million high-quality images for education and research in the Digital Library and offers the tools to catalog, manage, and distribute digital media collections with Shared Shelf.

  • Artstor Digital Library features more than 2 million digital images in the arts, architecture, humanities, and sciences with an accessible suite of software tools for teaching and research. Our community-built collections comprise contributions from outstanding international museums, photographers, libraries, scholars, photo archives, and artists and artists’ estates. Artstor Digital Library works alongside Shared Shelf, a cloud-based software for cataloguing, managing, preserving, and distributing your institution’s local media collections
  • Shared Shelf is a media management software that allows you to make your digital collections available to faculty and students in one-stop shop: Share one department’s teaching slides with the entire campus, preserve a retiring faculty member’s image archives, and have these collections appear alongside Artstor Digital Library’s 1.8 million images – making them easily discoverable within a system that faculty and students already know and use.
