April 1, 2016, New York, NY – Following January’s announcement of the strategic alliance between Artstor and ITHAKA, Artstor and JSTOR will now become a single resource to be known as STOR-STOR.
Commenting on the merger of the resources, STOR-STOR’s director of nomenclature Jay Starr said, “We considered naming the organization JART, but we wanted a name that didn’t imply that we only offered art-related content. Another approach was to focus on our shared qualities and become just STOR, but that failed to sufficiently address the inclusivity of our mission. After several weeks of work, we came up with STOR-STOR, and are currently negotiating with an existing storage company for the domain name storstor.org.”
“Among the most exciting opportunities open by the new STOR-STOR merger is the possibility of a future partnership with Storify,” added STOR-STOR president Arthur Stohr.
