Using ArtStor at ASU

A guide to Artstor--quality art images for your research

Sharing Folders

Sharing your image groups with colleagues:

With Instructor Privileges, you may create Shared Folders into which you can save Image Groups. You can control the access that other users will have to these Shared Folders and Image Groups.

My Work Folder

Every registered user in ARTstor is given a personal “Work Folder”. This is a folder automatically set-up for every user by the system. Its contents can only ever be viewed by that individual user.

Managing Shared Folders

After creating your shared folders, you may make changes to them. ARTstor tools allow you to delete Folders or Image Groups, change folder titles or passwords, and change access levels, e.g., from public to restricted.

Institutional Work Folder

There is also a public Institutional Work Folder, which is automatically created for each subscribing ARTstor institution. Its contents can be viewed by anyone at Brandeis. This folder is entitled Brandeis Work Folder.

It is designed for a user with Instructor-Level Privileges who would like to share his/her Image Groups with the entire University.

An Instructor may elect to save Image Groups into the Institutional Work Folder, rather than creating his/her own public Shared Folders. It is an additional option that ARTstor provides for Instructors who do not want to go through the process of creating their own Shared Folders, but would still like to share their Image Groups publicly. Every user at a given institution will automatically have Read Access to any groups saved in the Institutional Work Folder.

If you want to save images into the Brandeis work folder, you must have Instructor Privileges.

Hayden Library

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
