Artstor Shared Shelf
Visit ARTstor to view the SAIC Shared Shelf collection along with the 1.6 million other art images made available through Artstor.
All images from the MDID collection have been migrated into the new ARTstor Shared Shelf collection. MDID will remain available for historic users through the end of Spring Semester 2015. We have turned off the ability for new faculty accounts to be created in MDID, and recommend all new users start with ARTstor.
Request Digital Images
Digital images may be acquired through copy photography, slide scanning, or purchase. Please bring any materials to our offices along with this request form. VRC staff will work with you to create or aquire the images in a timely fashion. Staff require 3 Weeks to complete most requests.
Shared Shelf Training Schedule: Spring 2015
The Flaxman Library and MacLean Visual Resouces Center would like to welcome all Faculty back for Spring Semester 2015! We wanted to take this opportunity to remind you that we have migrated the image collection and all active collection development to our ARTstor Shared Shelf collection. MDID will remain available for historic users through the end of Spring Semester 2015. However, we would like to encourage you to start to use ARTstor for some of your lectures so that you are not caught unaware at the beginning of the summer. MDID will no longer be available after the end of this semseter.
If you would like to see examples of the new images we have been adding to the SAIC collection in ARTstor you can visit the Flaxman Library Tumblr with this link. We add posts about new images at least twice a week.
We should have a schedule up soon for group training sessions, but in the meantime if you would like to schedule a one-on-one ARTstor/MDID migration training session please drop us a line at email@example.com or call at 312-899-5101
ARTstor Shared Shelf Resources
The MDID@SAIC digital image collection is now live within ARTstor Shared Shelf, providing you with simultaneous access to our 180,000+ locally curated images (now in MDID) alongside the 1.6 million images in the familiar ARTstordatabase.
Shared Shelf training and orientation sessions will be conducted throughout the summer and fall of 2014 to help faculty learn more about Artstor and get their presentations ready in the new system.
We also suggest these Artstor Help sections for further investigation on your own:
- Artstor Training Materials
- Working with Image Folders
- Working with Image Groups
- Instructor Privileges
For assistance with Power Point, or other software tutorials, check out the resources at Lynda.com, available to you through the Flaxman Library.
