About Proxy Access

If your institution utilizes a proxy, we can provide your users with direct access to it via our institutional login. Simply provide us with your institution’s proxy URL and we will add it to the institutional login list.

If you are including the Digital Library URL in your proxy URL, please be sure to use: library.artstor.org, so that your users are routed directly to the Digital Library.

#Artstor Library
HTTPHeader X-requested-with
HTTPHeader Accept-Encoding

Restart your EZProxy server for the changes to take effect.

Please note that the Anonymous URL settings were removed on August 29, 2016

If you have any further questions related to the EZProxy entry, please let us know.


For Innovative, please see that you have WAM forward table entries for these three hosts:

  • www.artstor.org
  • library.artstor.org
  • web2.artstor.org

DO NOT create a wildcard entry, such as *.artstor.org. Please be sure to NEVER PROXY viewer.artstor.org and viewer2.artstor.org.

Innovative Interfaces

The Artstor Digital Library’s Innovative Interfaces configuration should be set-up as follows:

01 > Token artstor

02 > IP Address/Host Name http://library.artstor.org

03 > Port 80

04 > Service Level 0

05 > Verify 1

06 > Valid Patron Types 70-73,150-152,156,200,201,204,205

07 > Valid Patron Home Libs

08 > Database Identifier

09 > Database Name Artstor

10 > Logging Type Y

If there is a way for Innovative to allow multiple entries at 02 > IP Address/ Host Name http://library.artstor.org, the following entries should be added: library.artstor.org web2.artstor.org Please do not use *.artstor.org in that second line because it includes ‘viewer.artstor.org’ and this will cause an ‘Evaluation Copy’ imprint overtop of the images that your users will be viewing.
