Upcoming Changes to ARTstor

May 5, 2017 – 9:00 am

There are some upcoming feature changes to ARTstor which may require you to save some of your work in the ARTstor Digital Library:

  • The upload and metadata entry functions for Personal Collections will be paused between June 1st and early September this year. During this time you will be able to share, download, and save your existing images to groups as usual. However, you will not be able to add new images to your Personal Collection or edit any of the text associated with your existing images.
  • Uploading of OIV presentations into Personal Collections will be retired. If you need to share OIV presentations, please convert them to PDFs. An enhanced option for exporting your OIV presentations to other formats is being explored and will be available soon.
  • Personal notes and instructor notes are being retired. If you need any information saved in your personal or instructor notes, we recommend copying and pasting this information into your image group descriptions by June 1st.
  • The citation generator and saved citations will be temporarily removed and added back into the Digital Library after the new release. If you have saved citations that you need, please download them before June 1st.
  • Saved searches are being retired.
  • The date filter for search results will be temporarily removed in late May (prior to the release of the new site). It will return, with improvements, as part of the updated site.

You can learn more about the planned upgrades here.

Find ARTstor in the A-Z Database list at the Library.
