ARTstor: digital images for History of Science and Medicine

Wednesday 5 May, 11.00-13.00, Radcliffe Science Library Training Room.

ARTstor is not just for artists! It’s a digital collection of 1 million high-quality images, from the world’s leading museums, photo archives, art galleries, and libraries (including the Bodleian). As such it’s relevant to many research areas including history of science and medicine, and social sciences (as well as archaeology, art and architecture and the humanities in general). We will highlight the science-related material in ARTstor, and also demonstrate ways of viewing, managing and presenting images in your research or teaching.

The 2-hour session is designed to provide plenty of time for hands-on exploration of ARTstor, when we will be available to help you navigate the database. Session attendees do not need to stay for the entire 2 hours.

Key topics:

  • Access and registration
  • Collections’ content
  • Searching the collections
  • Organizing images
  • Making presentations
  • Using the Offline Image Viewer

Presenters: Vicky Brown, Visual Resources Curator, History of Art Dept.

Clare Hills-Nova, History of Art, and Italian Literature and Language Librarian.
