The Artstor website will be retired on August 1, 2024. To ensure a seamless transition to JSTOR, we’ll be copying the contents of all Artstor users’ image groups into folders in JSTOR Workspace in February 2024.
Once your image group content has been copied to JSTOR, you'll receive an email with more information, a link to your Workspace, and a list of any images which couldn't be copied at the time. (If an image that couldn't be copied becomes available on JSTOR later, it will automatically be added to your Workspace.)
Getting started with Workspace
To view your copied image group content and get started with Workspace, log into JSTOR and select Workspace from the main navigation.
Searching your Workspace and creating folders
Once you have several folders in your Workspace, you may want to use subfolders to organize them and bring together related content. The search box in Workspace can help.
Each of your copied image groups will appear as a folder with the same name as its corresponding image group on Artstor. If you already copied one or more of your image groups to JSTOR using our copy tool, copies of duplicate folders will include the copy date (YYYY-MM-DD) in their name.
To search for items and folders in your Workspace, enter your search term(s) in the Search Workspace search bar and press the Enter/Return key or click the magnifying glass icon. You can select one or more items in your search results by selecting the checkbox next to the item.
To move your selected items into another folder, select the Move button that appears at the top of your Workspace and choose an existing folder or create a new one.
See Workspace: Viewing and Organizing Your Research for more.
On JSTOR, parent folders with subfolders can be shared with students or colleagues.
If one or more of your image groups was shared with members of your institution on Artstor, the corresponding Workspace folder will be automatically shared with the same institution on JSTOR. You can edit these permissions at any time.
To share a folder, select the Share button after the folder name. See Workspace: Sharing Folders for more.
You can duplicate folders in your Workspace to make a copy that can be changed without affecting the original folder, for example, to use in a different course or for a different purpose.
To duplicate a folder, open the overflow menu after the folder name and select Duplicate. See Workspace: Viewing and Organizing Your Research for more.
Moving Personal Collections to JSTOR
If you have personal collections on Artstor and you want to make them available in your JSTOR Workspace, you can follow these steps to move them into image groups and then use our copy tool to transfer personal content to JSTOR until August 1, 2024.
- Log into Artstor.
- Open the Browse drop-down menu and select Personal Collections.
- Open the Organize drop-down menu and select Select all on page to select all images on the page.
- Select Save selections to a new group and choose a name for your new image group.
- You can display up to 72 items per page. If you have more than this in your personal collection, repeat these steps for each page.
