Love LibGuides? We do too. We’re thrilled to announce our new LibGuides aimed at helping students, faculty, and even librarians get started–or become experts–using the Artstor Digital Library. View them on our home page at, and please feel free to reuse them as you see fit; you have our permission!

Our faculty guide covers everything faculty need to know about presenting and teaching with Artstor Digital Library–from giving presentations using the tools within the database to sources for information about using primary source materials in the classroom. Also included are tips for faculty looking to support their students’ research habits, including links to the Library of Congress’ page on citing images, and in-resource tools like the citation generator and image download features.

“Using Artstor” is a guide for students aimed at helping them discover and use the core functionalities of Artstor Digital Library that will help them the most in their research: searching, downloading, citing, and presenting.

Finally, our guide for librarians covers all you need to know to get started helping students use Artstor Digital Library, and also provides in depth information about our metadata, promoting Artstor on your campus, and our administration and statistics sites.

Stay tuned for our upcoming subject guides, which will outline how Artstor Digital Library’s collections can be used across many different disciplines.
