ArtStor, the most comprehensive database of images, is an incredible resource. I just finished introducting it to a professor and despite the tediousness of registering, logging in, and turing off his pop up blocker (all of which are necessary for a successful ArtStor experience), he was amazed at the quality of the images and the sheer number of images available. The best part is once you are in an image, you can zoom in...and in...and in to see the texture of the paint, even the texture of the canvas!

I know ArtStor will be useful to our Core curriculum but wouldn't it be great to see it used in other programs?

If you are interested, come by the Library and we can think about how to use ArtStor in your projects, papers, or classroom.
