Guide to using Artstor at Brandeis

This guide was originally created in September 2006 by Deborah Vincelli at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, who graciously offered to share it with Brandeis University. It has been altered by Darwin Scott & Lisa Zeidenberg to fit Brandeis community needs

Personal Collections

You can upload your own local images to the live Artstor database and search them as a collection alongside other Artstor images.

Any user can have his or her own online Personal Collection where images can be uploaded and added to Artstor image groups already available to that user. Personal Collection images can be cataloged and sorted into topics for easy retrieval. Access to a Personal Collection can be restricted to an individual user, or to that user and others at the University. (Please note that neither Artstor nor Brandeis University is screening such content, and therefore the user is solely responsible for obtaining all necessary permissions before loading such images.)
