On the new Artstor platform, Folders have been removed; Sharing is now at the Group level.

What are Groups

Groups are a saved selection of up to 1,000 items that can be edited, tagged, have a description added to it, shared with others, and downloaded. All registered users can create groups.

Search Groups

From the Image Group page, click Search, select a group Type, then apply a keyword or phrase, then apply a Tag or multiple Tags to filter the list of Groups.

The second level of menus represents types of Groups:

Private – Groups created by you and set to the view setting “only me.” These groups may or may not have been shared with other users at your institution using the generate image group link feature.
Institutional – Groups created by you, or other registered users, and shared with your institution using the view setting “this institution.”
Artstor Curated – Groups curated by Artstor to highlight content, collection, topics, or themes. Available to all subscribers of Artstor.
Shared with me – Groups that have been created by another user, set as viewable by “only me” (the group owner), then shared directly with you via a Group link.

Browse Groups New


Sort the column of Groups by clicking on a Tag or Tags in the first column—selecting multiple tags will further limit the list of Groups on the right. Or, open a Group from the second column, by clicking on its title.

If you see only Institutional and Artstor Curated, this indicates you are not logged in to your registered user account.
