The entire collection of nearly 6,000 images from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Brooklyn Museum Costumes is now available in the Images for Academic Publishing (IAP) program. In addition to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, IAP’s founding partner, ARTstor is pleased to announce that seven important institutions are participating, including: The Getty Research Institute, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Yale University Art Gallery, Princeton University Art Museum, Northwestern University Library, and University of California, Irvine, and Bryn Mawr College.

The IAP program is intended to offload the costs of museums delivering high-resolution image files to scholars for academic publications, and to foster scholarly publication in the history of art by providing these high-quality TIFF image files free-of-charge to both ARTstor subscribers and non-subscribers alike. To find IAP images, simply add “IAP” to your search criteria; an icon reading “IAP” is located directly beneath the thumbnail image in your search results.

Collections live in IAP:

We invite museums who wish to share their digital collections with educational users to make their collections available in the ARTstor Digital Library. In addition, for museums who also wish to distribute images for free for academic publishing to elect to join the IAP program as well. For more information, visit
