Artstor: For Faculty

This Guide will help you navigate ARTstor, a digital library of images.

Instructor Privileges

Why should I upgrade my account with Instructor Privileges?


Instructor-Level Users have access to more advanced features. These include creating Shared Folders, adding comments to images in their folders, and uploading personal collections.

To upgrade to an instructor account: 

1.  Send an email to asking for instructor privileges.  If approved, you will be sent an Authorization Code and Password. 

2.  Log on to your ARTstor account.

3.  Go to the “Tools” toolbar button and click on the option to “Obtain Instructor Privileges.”

A form will open, prompting you for an Authorization Code and Password. 

4.  Click Submit.

Once you have been granted Instructor Privileges, you will notice that you have additional options available to you in the “Tools” toolbar menu.

The “Obtain Instructor Privileges” option will now be grayed-out, since the upgrade will be associated with your account from that point forward.


Images for Academic Publishing (IAP)

Images for Academic Publishing are images on Artstor that have been cleared to be used in academic publishing.  You can search for IAP images by adding IAP as a search term.  In addition, images that have been approved for IAP have a small IAP icon under the image.   You must agree to the terms and conditions before using an IAP image in your scholarly publication.
