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.

Feel free to drop me us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan on attending a session, but there is no official sign-up; just drop-in.
As a reminder MDID will remain available for historic users through the end of Spring Semester 2015 so you do not need to start using ARTstor this fall. But we want everyone to start working with it and to bring us their questions on how to best use it for classroom instruction.

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.
