How to get to ARTstor:

College Library Home page à Other Collections à ARTstor

http://webproxy.potsdam.edu:2048/login?url=http://www.artstor.org

 

METADATA: ARTstor claims to use the ULAN and Getty AAT, but data entry has not been consistent.  Names are not always entered consistently, and cross references are not always available: Jan Vermeer vs. Johannes Vermeer.  Variations in titles and initial articles can affect sort order of images.

 

URLS: Include the webproxy prefix for off-campus access: http://webproxy.potsdam.edu:2048/login?url= if you use the url in Blackboard or handouts.  The above path is necessary for off-campus users.  The Potsdam campus proxy server will authenticate users who will be prompted to enter their campus computer account username and password.

  

You can create persistent urls to an image:

http://www.artstor.org/artstor/ViewImages?id=4jdbYzM7ITM6Iyc2YiZ7VR8kWHspfFt4eic%3D&userId=hTJAcA%3D%3D&cid=iDxH

 

Or to image groups:

http://www.artstor.org/artstor/ViewImages?q=gDJHdzsr&userId=hTJAcA%3D%3D&igName=8CJGUzI9N2ZCW0k%3D

 

Don't forget to paste the proxy server prefix in front of each URL for links to images or image groups: 

http://webproxy.potsdam.edu:2048/login?url=http://www.artstor.org/artstor/ViewImages?id=4jdbYzM7ITM6Iyc2YiZ7VR8kWHspfFt4eic%3D&userId=hTJAcA%3D%3D&cid=iDxH

 

JSTOR ARTstor Search Prototype: Lets you search for images and articles in both databases simultaneously.  However it is not interoperable with the ARTstor interface (i.e. you cannot add images to your image groups.
