ARTstor Shared Shelf Pilot Fall 2014

The Art History Department, Carlos Museum, and the Emory Libraries' MARBL are participating in a pilot during Fall 2014.

As a result, the Art History Department’s Visual Resource Library image collection is now available in ARTstor. When you search ARTstor your results will include ARTstor images and some of Emory's local digital images.

Access to backend Shared Shelf cataloging software is part of this pilot project taking place during fall semester for Emory stakeholders.

If you are teaching this semester, please let your students know that they also have access to ARTstor for use in class presentations and research.  ARTstor is constantly adding new images collections from museums, libraries, artists, and scholars, and now contains over 1.6 million images.
