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.

From James Shulman
President, Artstor

I’m writing to announce a call for collection-building proposals focused on at-risk archives of individual scholars. The Artstor Digital Library includes many image collections from individual scholars who have built important archives in support of their work.  Now, we are launching a project to preserve and increase the availability of these at-risk collections by inviting the Visual Resources community, which supports many such scholars, to identify and submit proposals for Artstor to provide some modest financial support to digitize and catalog some of these collections.  Artstor would then maintain the collections and make them available through the Artstor Digital Library as well as through open access initiatives (especially the Digital Public Library of America, with whom we have worked as a content hub since their April 2013 launch).

The release is part of an ongoing initiative; last year, Artstor also provided access in DPLA to more than 23,000 high-quality images from major American museums and universities.

artstor_logo_rgb2July 1, 2014 will mark ten years since the Artstor Digital Library became available for educational use. Today, nearly half a million registered users at more than 1,500 educational institutions around the world use the Library for their research and teaching. We are always fascinated by the work being done using Artstor – from Lois Kuyper-Rushing, the music librarian at Louisiana State who curated dozens of image groups related to musicology, to Lera Boroditsky, professor of psychology at Stanford, who tracked the gender representations of ideas (such as Liberty) across cultures and times.

As the Artstor Digital Library continues to expand its multidisciplinary content (including cartoons from The New Yorker and anthropological objects from The American Museum of Natural History), we continue to develop on other fronts. Last year, we worked with six museums to support the launch of the open Digital Public Library of America (DPLA). Soon after, institutions such as the University of Delaware, Bryn Mawr College, and Cornell University contributed special collections of images and video to the DPLA via our Shared Shelf service.
