Join Artstor at the Charleston Conference, November 5-8 in Charleston, South Carolina. Visit us at table 25 in the Charleston Conference’s Vendor Showcase to and learn about our ten years of sharing collections with educational and scholarly communities.

Panel discussion, Thursday, November 6, 3:15-4:00 PM
Library Relations Account Manager Jen Hoyer is moderating Opening Open Access: Exposing Digital Images Collections with Ease. This panel will investigate the open access initiatives of three higher education institutions that are publishing digital media collections to various open access platforms, including Omeka, The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), and Shared Shelf Commons.

Speakers include Jane Carlin, University of Puget Sound Library; Camilla MacKay, Carpenter Library at Bryn Mawr College; and Gregg Silvis, University of Delaware Library.

Charleston Premiers, Saturday, November 8, 8:00-9:30 AM
Colleen Hunter, our Director of Account Management for North America, will be discussing Shared Shelf as part of Charleston’s short series of vendor presentations. Learn how institutions are using Shared Shelf to make their digital collections more accessible and discoverable for faculty, students, and the broader Internet community. Shared Shelf ensures that multimedia collections are safe, well-managed, and deliverable in exactly the way that faculty and students need them to be.

The deadline for Artstor’s new initiative to preserve and increase the availability of at-risk collections of individual scholars has been extended to November 15.

What it is
Artstor will provide modest financial support to digitize and catalog selected at-risk collections. We will then maintain the collections and make them available through the Artstor Digital Library and open access initiatives such as the Digital Public Library of America.

We will also offer access to our Shared Shelf tools to support the cataloging of these collections, and can provide the data and images back to the contributor in a structured format for those who wish to utilize the resulting content in other systems.

Artstor Labs

Artstor Labs

Artstor is always working on improving its services. While you may notice some changes immediately, others might prove more subtle. In the case of Shared Shelf, our digital media management solution, the developments are sometimes dramatic as we work in close collaboration with users.

What is the thinking behind these changes? We’re pulling back the curtain in Artstor Labs (labs.artstor.org), a cross section of ideas, inspirations, and experiments that inform the ongoing digital design of Shared Shelf, the Digital Library, and other initiatives.

Focusing on topics related to visual culture, graphic design, and user experience, Artstor Labs offers a glimpse of our design process in relationship with the broader trends occurring in new media and digital humanities. In keeping with this spirit, entries are arranged hierarchically rather than chronologically to reflect their relationship with previous ideas. As the repository grows, a richly layered listing of nested links will track these ideas over time.
