ARTstor is a collection of over one million digital images in the areas of art, architecture, humanities, and social sciences for use in research and teaching for the University of Colorado Digital Library community.
ARTstor is a non-profit subscription service initiated by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to provide curated collections of digital images and associated data for noncommercial and scholarly, non-profit educational use. ARTstor became available in July 2004, and has over 1,000 U.S. and international institutions participating.
Collections include the Art History Survey Collection, the Hartill Archive of Architecture and Allied Arts, the MOMA Architecture and Design Collection, the Carnegie Arts of the U.S., and the Huntington Archive of Asian Arts. Included with each image is descriptive information such as title, creator, date, size, and current location. ARTstor also provides tools to create webpages, presentations, and study guides.
