Visual Resources Collection

JHU Visual Resources Collection is available within the ARTstor Digital Library

The JHU Visual Resources Collection is available within the ARTstor Digital Library via Shared Shelf. Shared Shelf is a tool that allows the VRC to publish our image collection to ARTstor for JHU faculty, students, and staff. 

Advantages to ARTstor

Having the VRC's images in ARTstor has many advantages:

  • “One Stop Shopping:” The VRC's images appear alongside images throughout ARTstor’s collections
  • ARTstor’s filtering tools are available for the VRC's images (filter your search by date, modern country, or type of object) 
  • Extensive cataloging data is visible for the VRC's images making searching easier
  • Names, places, and other related terminology used in VRC image data are linked to the Getty Vocabularies creating better search results for search terms with alternate names and spellings. (Example: Searching “Syrien” will bring up results for “Syria”)
