ARTstor Mobile

ARtstor Mobile logoworks on most mobile device browsersARTstor has recently updated their mobile site.

All 1,000,000+ images from the ARTstor Digital Library are now accessible to registered ARTstor users on their mobile devices. These mobile versions provide read-only features such as searching, browsing, zooming, and viewing saved image groups.

The best feature? ARTstor Flashcard View allows you to test your knowledge by viewing the image without textual information, and then flipping the image to reveal the image record (see example below).  Great way to study for that art lecture exam. 

To access any of these mobile versions, you will first need to create an account at the full ARTstor site from any computer connected to the campus network.

Thereafter, you can navigate to the mobile site at http://mobile.artstor.org and log in with your ARTstor login and password.

Users can create a registered user account when accessing Artstor from a valid IP address (either on campus or through linking via our databases).

Each registered user account allows for a 120-day Remote Access Period during which it may be used to access Atstor from any computer.

Each time a user logs in to his or her account from an authenticated IP address, the 120-day period is reset.
