ARTstor, a digital library, houses more than two million images ranging from the fine arts (painting, sculpture, graphic arts, architecture) to “Cornell’s Historic Glacial Images of Alaska and Greenland archive,”  “Schlesinger History of Women in America,” and more. ARTstor is listed under “Databases A-Z” on  Falvey’s homepage. ARTstor is readily available, images correctly identified and easy to download just in time for that final paper or presentation.

ARTstor is user-friendly; you can search for images using a keyword or by an advanced search by creator, culture, subject, title, geography, date range or other features. Once located, you can   zoom in or pan the image to look at details. ARTstor may be used for classroom instruction and for student presentations. Faculty and students may download materials and print them for use in papers, theses, and dissertations, but you must follow ARTstor’s guidelines for permitted uses.

For help with ARTstor, please contact Jutta Seibert (room 228, telephone 610-519-7876) or any of Falvey’s librarians.
