2What is ARTstor?A not-for-profit organization created by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation that is developing a digital library of art images to enhance scholarship, teaching and learning in the arts and humanitiesA primary resource: online Image collections and descriptive dataA scholarly and pedagogical resource: software tools to enable active use of contentA non-profit resource: solely for non-commercial educational and scholarly useComments for this slide: we will soon be an independent not-for-profit organization, we take the concept of ‘associated fields’ seriously (we want to be useful for humanities and social sciences as well, using term ‘art’ very loosely – includes architecture, dec arts, etc.
3Overview of ARTstor Digital Library What you can do with ARTstorSearch and Browse collectionsAnalyze images using zoom and panSave groups of images for personal use, group use or institution-wide accessPresentation / slide-show toolsWhat you will see in ARTstorDigital images and descriptive dataInitial collections include art, architecture and archeologyTotal number of images in charter collections: ~300,000
12The ARTstor Charter Collections: Research Objectives Work with a variety of content providersLibraries, museums, photo archives, publishers, slide librariesTest a variety of approaches to building collectionsDirect digital captureScanning photographic sources (transparencies, prints, slides)Cost-benefit analysisAssess the user’s experienceWhat approaches work best for a variety of users, a variety of uses, in a variety of institutional settings?
13The Image Gallery The connecting fabric of the ARTstor Library Ca 200,000 images, most made from color 35mm “copystand” slidesTeaching gallery based on relatively representative undergraduate curriculaSubset of 4,000 images based on key monuments illustrated in standard art history survey textsItem level cataloging records available for all images, with topical subject accessDiscourages redundancy and allows campuses to use limited resources judiciouslyPoint of departure for a collaborative image and data enhancement program
14The MoMA Architecture and Design Collection Example of a digital museum collection catalog8,000 images from 6,200 objectsDigitized via direct digital captureExtremely high resolution images
15The Mellon International Dunhuang Archive Example of an archeological documentation project40 caves out of several hundredDigitized via direct digital captureExtremely high resolution3D virtual tours of the shrinesWorking with major institutions in US, UK and France to digitize versions of materials originally located at Dunhuang
16The Illustrated Bartsch Example of a digital art reference workCa 57,000 images of old master European prints, with rich cataloging and scholarly commentaryBased on 100 volume authoritative print publicationDigitized from 5x7 b/w prints

23Some of ARTstor’s Challenges Building the ARTstor Digital LibraryManaging a complex production processCoordinating flow of images, text, and other resources from multiple sources and vendorsAbsorbing collections with widely varying metadata structures and image qualityWorking without universally accepted standardsDeveloping intuitive software tools to support a variety of usesMaking the ARTstor Digital Library available and usefulUnderstanding ARTstor’s users and potential audienceIdentifying where ARTstor ‘lands’ within an institution organizationallyDeveloping scalable solutions for interoperability, access & authorizationImplementing effective digital rights management and actionable rights expressions

27Interoperability: What we know ARTstor needs to be a centralized resource for the following reasonsTo learn more about uses of digital images and users’ needsTo offer more interactive tools to those who want themTo create a regulated space for non-commercial useUsers will almost certainly want to use ARTstor content and tools along with other digital image resources and software platformsNeed to develop and implement a consistent expression and management of rights for all digital content in ARTstor
