Why use JSTOR Admin now?
JSTOR recently released a new and improved admin site for account administrators. Although Artstor admin sites will remain fully functional as long as the Artstor platform is available, we want to inform Artstor admins of the new JSTOR Admin site to give you plenty of time to take full advantage of and familiarize yourself in advance of the retirement of Artstor.
NOTE: We know many institutions with both Artstor and JSTOR have different administrators for each, and that the new JSTOR Admin brings these administrators to a shared space for the first time. We will inform all administrators of this, and trust institutions to establish or revise workflows accordingly that best suit their needs.
