  • Artstor Essentials: discover our latest tools - This webinar will show you everything that’s changed since our big relaunch. Not just a show-and-tell: we’ll also teach you how to use these tools and get started organizing and downloading content for your teaching and research, plus answer any questions.
  • Copyright and the Artstor Digital Library - The Artstor Digital Library evaluates copyright before making images available to our subscribers, simplifying the image-use process for users. Join us to review some basic guidelines for working with images on the Artstor platform, including permitted and prohibited uses for Artstor Digital Library collections, and how you can use Artstor’s publicly-available collections, including Open Artstor. We’ll also save time to answer question.
  • Bringing Art & Literature Together - Join the editors of JSTOR’s Lives of Literature and Artstor, Anne Ray and Nancy Minty, as they explore the connections between visual imagery and the written word. Gain an editor’s perspective of new themes that emerge when artworks, photographs, and historical objects are examined alongside works of literature—as well as how curricula can be enlivened by drawing these connections.
  • Librarian and Faculty Collaboration for Student Success - (this one is aimed at secondary schools) Ever wish there was more collaboration at your school? Join us to explore various techniques that foster collaboration with colleagues to improve student success — and to share your own tips. Wendy DeGroat, librarian at Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School in Richmond, Virginia, has been successfully collaborating with classroom faculty over her 20 year career and has proven techniques to share.
