Join us for a webinar demonstrating research practices for novice researchers with the topic of the history of women’s suffrage in the United States from the mid-19th to early 20th century.

In honor of Women’s History Month, we will explore some useful collections alongside the rich content and tools available in both JSTOR and Artstor. We’ll show you how you can build a lesson around primary sources including images, historical documents, and contemporary essays debating universal enfranchisement, then connect them to academic research for context.

This webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, February 27, 2018 11:00 AM – 11:45 AM EST.

2017 was a big year for Artstor. Not only did we add over 350,000 new images, but we also completely overhauled the Artstor platform, creating a new interface and tools while improving the back-end systems that power the site to increase search speed and reliability. Here’s what changed:

  • Artstor got a facelift with a new, streamlined interface design.
  • Images open on a new page rather than as pop-ups. Pop-ups are difficult to navigate when you aren’t able to adjust your browser settings, as is often the case on computers managed by an IT department. This change also allows you to link directly to an image and its data without opening a pop-up, which is confusing to recipients (especially those who have pop-ups blocked and find a link leads to nowhere).
  • Images are now on a IIIF viewer with fullscreen capabilities and side-by-side comparison mode. Read more about IIIF’s incredible work on their site.
  • We simplified image-group sharing: all registered users can share image groups with other users at your institution, not just faculty. Now, students can collaborate on image groups and faculty can more easily work with students and TA’s to curate groups.
  • Artstor now includes a flashcard mode in the fullscreen image view to study for exams. Read more about this feature on our support site.
  • We increased Artstor’s web accessibility for users with disabilities.
  • Our URLs are now shorter for easier linking in LibGuides, course websites, emails, and more.
  • The entire site is mobile friendly. Direct your smartphone’s browser to library.artstor.org, sign in, and enjoy Artstor’s full set of features. Remember to turn your phone sideways for full-screen views!
  • Image citations are now available in many formats, including APA, Chicago, and MLA style.
