Discover ARTstor images through JSTOR and CSA Discovery Links
Did you know that you can search and find ARTstor images from other resources? ARTstor is actively developing relationships with other electronic resource providers to enhance discovery of images across databases. We recently established enhanced discovery options with JSTOR and CSA.
The JSTOR/ARTstor cross search allows you to keyword search JSTOR article content, JSTOR image captions, and ARTstor images. The combined search result page is separated into three tabs – Articles, Images from Articles, and ARTstor Images. If your institution participates in ARTstor and JSTOR, you will see ARTstor image thumbnails as well as the title, creator and date information in your search results. You can click to view the full-sized image through the ARTstor website.
CSA Discovery Links allow you to link out and discover alternative content related to your research. After initiating a search within the CSA “Arts and Humanities” subject area, you can access ARTstor results in the Discovery Links window. Thumbnails and basic information for the first ten ARTstor results will be displayed. When you click on the image or the link, you will connect to ARTstor and open the image in the ARTstor image viewer.
Integrating ARTstor with Courseware
Instructors can share ARTstor content with students through campus courseware systems, such as BlackBoard, WebCT, Sakai, or Moodle. You can upload images, provide URLs to link students to individual images or entire image groups, or share OIV presentation files. Our courseware guide explains how ARTstor content can be shared through courseware systems.
Export image citations to citation management software
Citation management software is used to manage citations and create bibliographies. You can create image lists in ARTstor and export the image citations directly to RefWorks, EndNote, ProCite, or Reference Manager. You may also share lists of ARTstor images with others by printing, emailing, or downloading the citation list.
Interactive features of ARTstor
ARTstor contains many interactive features that allow instructors and students to communicate within the ARTstor environment. Instructors may share image groups with students by creating shared folders. Students can register to an instructor’s shared folder to view the instructor’s image groups, analyze images and metadata, study, and annotate images.
Instructors can also create student work folders associated with instructor shared folders. Student work folders give students a place to create image groups, add comments to images, and share this work with the instructor.
