On May 8th, the GLAM Center for Collaborative Teaching and Learning held our final faculty development workshop of the spring semester. Representatives from Artstor were on hand to provide an overview of this excellent resource available at the AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library. Artstor is a digital library with millions of interdisciplinary images from the world’s museums, libraries, archives, scholars, and artists that makes it easy to share, research, curate, and teach with visual materials.
Artstor is an excellent resource that can provide users with copyright-cleared images to use in papers, lectures, and in conference presentations. In addition to artwork, Artstor images can be used in support of a number of academic disciplines including African American studies, Native American studies, and religious studies. Attendees of the workshop not only viewed a live demonstration on how to use Artstor, but also a demonstration of one of Artstor’s newest tools, Copyright Checkpoint, which assists users in determining the copyright status of images from their own collections.
Be sure to stay tuned to our blog to see what the GLAM Center will be working on over the summer break. We’ll be back with more faculty development workshops and exhibits this fall!
