What's the Story with Artstor?

collection-splash.pngToday we got several questions about paintings, pottery, and sculptures. After hitting the books, many students were surprised at how much they could learn from Artstor.

The Artstor Digital Library is a nonprofit resource that provides over 1.6 million digital images in the arts, architecture, humanities, and sciences with an accessible suite of software tools for teaching and research. Collections are used for teaching and study in a wide range of subject areas, including art, architecture, music, religion, anthropology, literature, world history, American Studies, Asian Studies, Classical Studies, Medieval Studies, Renaissance Studies, and more.

Students were able to locate the information they needed, in addition to full color photos. Taking the summer off? We still suggest checking out Artstor. Nothing beats being able to browse the collections from famous museums around the country--without having to pay for tickets and parking!

Remember, You'll need a COD student or staff library card to access databases from off campus. Questions? Ask a Librarian--we'd love to hear from you!
