As noted during the fall semester, the transition from Artstor to JSTOR is continuing. As of right now, we know that Artstor will be supported at least through the 2021-2022 academic year.

At this time, the VRC continues to recommend that you primarily use Artstor for your image needs as ITHAKA is still working on incorporating image tools into JSTOR, as well as improving other existing features. Guidance is forthcoming on the migration of image groups and personal images from Artstor to JSTOR.

 However, JHU is one of ten institutions around the world currently participating in ITHAKA’s beta testing program. Please consider taking a look at Artstor on JSTOR and doing some experimenting. You are currently able to log into JSTOR using your Artstor credentials to save images and create folders in Workspace in JSTOR. All feedback will be incredibly useful in shaping the future of the platform and the VRC’s image collections. To really make an impact, ITHAKA needs to hear from end users. The VRC is interested in chatting with you about your Artstor on JSTOR use and needs! If you have any feedback or thoughts to share, email the VRC or contact JSTOR Support or Artstor Support directly.

For more information about the transition, see this overview, this updates page, or email the VRC.  For more information about how the VRC can help you with your courses and research this semester, please visit our guide.
