(4 June 2015) Artstor is now making all media collections from open-access library Shared Shelf Commons accessible alongside the Artstor Digital Library. More than 200,000 image, video, document, and audio files from Shared Shelf subscribers in the ever-growing resource can now be searched alongside the 1.9 million images in the Artstor Digital Library.
The content in Shared Shelf Commons from institutions such as Bryn Mawr, UMASS Boston, and Washington University in St. Louis is now discoverable alongside collections from Artstor Digital Library contributors such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the American Museum of Natural History, the Library of Congress, and more than 200 other museums, archives, and scholars.
For Artstor Digital Library users, this development conveniently brings media as varied as City College of New York’s Science Animation collection and The University of Delaware’s Franklin C. Daiber Botanical Collection to their searches. For Shared Shelf Commons contributors, this means exposure of their collections to Artstor subscribers in more than 1,600 universities, K-12 schools, and museums worldwide.
