The ARTstor Digital Library database is a resource that provides more than one million digital images in the arts, architecture, humanities, and sciences with an accessible suite of software tools for teaching and research. Due to a recent database update, ARTstor users may notice some changes to their saved folders. New changes include:
- Password-protected folders that have been unlocked by a user will now be easily found in their own upper-level category, Unlocked Folders, instead of in the list of Institutional Folders.
- Another new upper-level category has been introduced: Global Folders, which currently contains Featured Groups, including Art History Topics, Interdisciplinary Topics, and Travel Awards.
- The Help button has been moved to the main navigation bar.
After this update, some users may find that they cannot see their folders or image groups; clearing the browser cache should resolve the issue. You can find detailed instructions on how to do this on the ARTstor help wiki. For ARTstor and other online resources accessible at the Doherty Library, go to http://www.stthom.edu/Public/index.asp?page_ID=3776 or, as always, you can contact Doherty librarians for more help at askus.stthom.edu.
