ARTstor is a non-profit organization created by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. ARTstor has developed a digital library of images (including art, architecture and archeology) and descriptive data. ARTstor also provides software tools to enable active use of the images. The tools support a wide range of uses including analyzing images, saving groups of images online, and creating and delivering presentations both online and offline. This is a resource available only for non-commercial, educational uses.
There are three levels of access for ARTstor users.
