The Artstor Support Team sent information today (May 18th) about some upcoming feature changes which may require users to save some of their work in the Artstor Digital Library. These changes are part of the release of an improved platform which will feature a redesigned interface, streamlined features, and which will run on the same backend technology that currently powers the ITHAKA service JSTOR. This represents a first step toward the longer-term goal of creating an integrated platform experience for users of both the Artstor Digital Library and JSTOR – now both allied services under the ITHAKA umbrella. Learn more about our upcoming release.

The feature changes are as follows:

  • Personal notes and instructor notes are being retired. If you need any information saved in your personal or instructor notes, Artstor staff recommend copying and pasting this information into your image group descriptions by June 1st.
  • The citation generator and saved citations will be temporarily removed and added back into the Digital Library after the new release. If you have saved citations that you need, please download them before June 1st.
  • Saved searches are being retired.
  • The date filter for search results will be temporarily removed in late May (prior to the release of the new site). It will return, with improvements, as part of the updated site this summer.

Please reach out to the Artstor Support Team at with any questions you have.
