ARTstor is a digital library initiative launched by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Its mission is to use digital technology to enhance scholarship, teaching and learning in the arts and associated fields. As part of a community-wide effort to further this goal, ARTstor will build, continually develop, and distribute a library of digital images and related information to serve the needs of researchers, teachers, and students. ARTstor will work closely with both providers and users of content from educational and cultural institutions around the world to construct a not-for-profit, public utility. This project briefing will provide an update on the development of ARTstor, the “testing” process, and eventual rollout.
