Artstor to JSTOR

This year, the Artstor Digital Library is migrating to JSTOR. On August 1, 2024, Artstor will sunset and content will only be available through Existing user data on Artstor accounts, including groups, carried over to JSTOR on February 1, 2024. The ArtCenter Library recommends all users begin accessing the Artstor Digital Library through JSTOR from now on to ensure user data stays with the user's JSTOR profile when the Artstor website officially sunsets for all users on August 1, 2024.

The updated url available through the Library Online Resources A-Z List now redirects to JSTOR Images. This image database includes all Artstor collections and additional JSTOR image content. Please reach out to the Library at if you have any questions about this transition or any problems accessing Artstor content with your JSTOR account.

Artstor, the extensive digital image library with content from museums, photo archives and more, is a valuable resource for all art and design disciplines. Contributors to Artstor include The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Mark Rothko Estate, the Bodleian Library, and Carnegie Arts of the United States, just to name a few. The primary goals of Artstor are "to support educational and scholarly activities by assembling image collections from across many cultures and eras, and to work with the arts and educational communities to develop collective solutions to the challenges of working and teaching with images in a digital environment."
