ARTSTOR update

Users of ARTSTOR might notice that some things are different lately. If you've never used ARTSTOR before, it's a good time to try it out, especially if you use Chrome. Here's their email explaining the changes:

Updates to the ARTstor Digital Library  
New release

Dear ARTstor User Support and Technical Contacts,

There was an update to the ARTstor Digital Library this week. New changes include:

  • Full support for Chrome browsers.
  • In your image search results, you may now see icons on the lower right-hand corner of the image thumbnail: "P" denotes Personal Collection (for images uploaded by a campus instructor), and "H" Hosted images (for images visible only at your institution).
  • Folders are now nested in two upper level folders: "Private Folders" and "Institutional Folders." "Private Folders" contains folders viewable only by you. "Institutional Folders" contains folders that are viewable by other users at your institution either as "Public" folders or as "Password-protected" folders.

After this update, some users may find that they cannot see their folders or image groups; clearing the browser cache should resolve the issue. Read detailed instructions on how to do this on our help wiki.

And of course, you can contact User Services for more help at

Kind regards,

ARTstor User Services Team
