About ARTstor


You may visit Artstor via NWACC Library's page: Here

  • The ARTstor Digital Library is a nonprofit resource, available via the Library's webpage, that provides access to digital images in the arts, architecture, and humanities.
  • However, not all artworks are included in ARTstor.
  • You can also use a Google image search to find museums, and other non-profit organizations, that provide images and information on artworks in their collections.
  • A sample search would be "picasso site:org" or "picasso site:edu".
  • The site:org or site:edu restricts your results to organizational or educational websites, such as museums and libraries.
