ARTstor images linked to CSA Database Records

July 25, 2007


A new enhancement to the CSA interface allows users to find images in ARTstor that are associated with bibliographic records in CSA databases. By clicking on the “discovery links,” the researcher is presented with a series of ARTstor images associated with bibliographic records. The value of the most important database for 19th – 21st century art, ArtBibliographies Modern, is greatly enhanced by this “meta-search” option.

JSTOR/ARTSTOR Combined Search

April 6, 2007

Searching JSTOR, the fulltext archive of important scholarly journals, also retrieves images from ARTSTOR,
the digital library of art images and descriptive information.

ARTSTOR JSTOR combined search

“Users have the opportunity to keyword search JSTOR article content, JSTOR image captions, and ARTstor image metadata. The combined search result page is separated into three tabs – Articles, Images from Articles, and ARTstor Images so that users can easily view and choose among their results. [Since NYU Libraries] participates in ARTstor and JSTOR, you will see ARTstor image thumbnails as well as the title, creator and date information in your search results. You can click to view the full-sized image and complete metadata through the ARTstor website.”–JSTOR
