The Highlighter is your run-down on the best resources Falvey Memorial Library has to offer.

Have you ever needed high-quality images or works of art for a paper? Have you ever been thinking of a painting, but can’t remember the artist? Or the title?

Falvey Library wants you to work smart and work hard, and ArtStor can help.

ArtStor is a database/digital library with over two million images. Yes, you read that correctly!

You can browse through images, refine your search by subject (“apples” or “sailboats”), by artist (like “van Gogh”), by era, geographic location, and more. Then, you can even catalog them and store them in your own personal collection!

Use ArtStor for your next PowerPoint Presentation, art history paper, or browse it for hours as a fun way to procrastinate.

For any specific research-related questions regarding art history, contact Jutta Seibert (jutta.seibert@villanova.edu) at Falvey Memorial Library.
