The Princeton University Art Museum and ARTstor are now sharing approximately 600 images from the museum’s encyclopedic collections in the Digital Library. This is the first release of an approximately 10,000 projected images.

The Princeton University Art Museum is one of the nation’s leading art museums, with more than 72,000 works of art in its collections. The Museum was founded in 1882 on the belief that the study of great original works of art was essential to higher education and the enlightenment of the general public. In addition to displaying its collections, the Museum hosts many special exhibitions each year, accompanied by lectures, artists’ talks, scholarly symposia, concerts, film screenings, and family programs. Along with the University’s Department of Art and Archaeology and the Marquand Library, the Museum forms a dynamic center for the study of the fine arts. A selection of rights-cleared images in this collection that fall in the public domain will be included in ARTstor’s Images for Academic Publishing (IAP) program.
