The Artstor Digital Library is an image database featuring over 2 million images from some of the world's leading museums, photo archives, scholars, and artists in one easily-navigated repository.
It is the most comprehensive image resource available for educational and scholarly use, offering a broad view of art, architecture and all aspects of visual and material culture, as well as archaeological and anthropological objects. All images are accompanied by comprehensive metadata and are rights-cleared for educational use.
Project MUSE was launched in 1995 by the Johns Hopkins University Press to offer the full text of JHUP scholarly journals via the Web. In 1999, Muse expanded to become a unique partnership of not-for-profit publishers, increasing its ability to
offer essential periodicals in the humanities, the arts, and the social sciences.
This resource provides access to the full text of over 650 journal titles.
