A Librarian's Guide to Artstor on JSTOR: Welcome

Guide for news and resources related to bringing Artstor to the JSTOR platform

JSTOR and Artstor logos

JSTOR is a growing digital library that includes multiple types and formats of content. In 2021 we launched a project to bring Artstor to JSTOR, to create a robust platform for discovering and working with both text and images. Throughout 2021 and into 2022, images from Artstor collections are being added to JSTOR, and JSTOR platform features and functionality are evolving to support work with multiple formats of research materials.

Key things to know

  • Artstor collections are being added to JSTOR - about 95% of the licensed Artstor collections are now visible on JSTOR as of June 2021.
  • JSTOR features and functionality are evolving to support research and teaching with multiple content types, including images. 
  • The Artstor Digital Library ( will be supported at least through the 2021-2022 academic year. Faculty and students can be confident in using the Artstor platform for teaching and research during this time.
  • Access to licensed Artstor collections requires a subscription, but 500,000 open Artstor images are freely available on JSTOR.
