Artstor Collections Summary 2013

Thanks to our contributors and the support of our subscribing institutions, 2013 proved to be yet another fruitful year for the Artstor Digital Library. In the past twelve months we launched approximately 112,500 new images from 22 new collections and expanded the content in 12 existing collections. Among the highlights, we now make available images from the Courtauld Gallery, the World Monuments Fund, the National Gallery, London, Condé Nast (fashion photography and New Yorker cartoons), Rijksmuseum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Romare Bearden Foundation, Lukas: Art in Flanders, the Berlin State Museums, and Denmark’s Statens Museum for Kunst. We are happy to announce that we now make available close to 1.7 million images in the United States and 1.4 million internationally.

We also reached agreements for 17 new or expanded collections last year from institutions such as the Art Gallery of Ontario, the American Museum of Natural History, the Mattress Factory, the Fashion Institute of Technology, and the Cooper–Hewitt, National Design Museum.

These collections are making an impact at more than 1,500 institutions in 48 countries: In 2013, our users performed approximately 9 million searches, viewed more than 10 million individual images, and downloaded more than 1.6 million images.

We look forward to continue serving your educational and research needs in 2014!
