Updates to the ARTstor Digital Library

August 13, 2012

After the sceduled update to ARTstor Digital Library, users will see some upper-level enhancements to this resource. New changes  include:

  1. 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.
  2. Another new upper-level category has been introduced: Global Folders, which currently contains Featured Groups, including Art History Topics, Interdisciplinary Topics, and Travel Awards.
  3. 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 our help wiki.
