Special Usage Notes

Please note: For some users, mainly those on PCs, it will be necessary to install software such as 7Zip to unzip ARTstor downloads.

ARTstor offers tools that enable users to create personal folders and then share contents of those folders with other University users in a password-protected environment. The Offline Image Viewer, which is downloadable to the user's desktop, allows the import of ARTstor images as well as images from other sources to create a slideshow comparable to, but more functional than, a PowerPoint presentation.

ARTstor will interoperate with learning management systems like WebCT and Blackboard by allowing users to create stable URLs that permit linking from a learning management system or course website to ARTstor images or image groups.

To obtain full access to ARTstor, users should register and create individual logons by clicking in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. Instructors who want to create shared image folders should contact the Fine Arts Library (257-2800) or Design Library (257-4305) to receive the necessary authorization codes.

Please note: Pop-ups must be ENABLED when using ARTstor.
