Vendor Description

Artstor was initiated by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to use digital technology. Artstor is a nonprofit with a mission to use digital technology to enhance scholarship, teaching and learning in the arts and associated fields.

The Artstor Digital Library provides more than 1.8 million digital images in the arts, architecture, humanities, and sciences with an accessible suite of software tools for teaching and research. The community-built collections comprise contributions from outstanding international museums, libraries, scholars, photo archives and artists. These collections are used for teaching and study in a wide range of subject areas by more than 1,600 institutions worldwide.

Shared Shelf allows libraries to catalog, manage and share their institution’s multimedia collections with ease, create richer and more consistent data records quickly, easily accommodate any metadata schema and back files up safely in accordance with NDSA standards. It delivers material in the most useful way possible for teaching and research, whether to local institutional systems, alongside images in the Artstor Digital Library, or to open access environments such as DPLA, OMEKA, and Shared Shelf Commons. As Shared Shelf is cloud-based, it requires no local IT support or maintenance-which helps save libraries time and money.
