Navigating the tremendous number of images in the Artstor Digital Library can be daunting, particularly to those in fields outside of art history. Where to start looking for images for, say, an Introduction to Philosophy class? To address that hurdle, we are introducing curriculum guides – collections of images from the Artstor Digital Library based on syllabi for college courses.
Every curriculum guide will be broken down into topics or themes, each composed of approximately ten images that illustrate or support the subject. We’re working directly with faculty members and experts around the country to ensure the image collections are an accurate, reliable source of information for other instructors to use in the classroom.
When completed, the curriculum guides, course descriptions, and links to the image collections will be posted on Artstor’s website. In the next few weeks we’ll be featuring some previews on the blog. To see which guides are already available, go to the Artstor Digital Library search page and click on the “Folders & Image Groups” button in the center of the page, then go to Global Folders > Featured Groups > Curriculum Guides.
