With material covering the entire history of art, the JHU Visual Resources Collection’s strengths include ancient art, medieval art, Renaissance art, manuscripts and printed books, 19th and 20th century art, and contemporary Asian art.

Courses and Projects using Artstor & JSTOR at JHU
The VRC collaborated with Spring 2020's Classics Research Lab the Antioch Recovery Project (ARP) to add more than 500 new images of Antioch mosaics to Artstor for the students and investigators working on the project. The VRC used Image Groups in Artstor to create this group of 849 images. One of the student investigators was then able to create image groups for each house.
