Fun Fact - JSTOR and Artstor

JSTOR users at institutions that also subscribe to Artstor (Hekman Library is one of these) may encounter a colorful surprise: some search results on JSTOR are now displaying image results from the Artstor Digital Library.

This special feature is in pilot stage. Currently, some 840,000 images are available in the JSTOR image search, and the number will grow as they obtain the rights to display more. Image search on JSTOR is not intended to replace search on the Artstor Digital Library; rather, it is designed to enhance research on JSTOR, and not every search query will show images in the results.

You may want to conduct some searches to experiment. Terms to get you started: "New York tenements, Alfred Hitchcock, wetlands, Santa Claus, and aquarium.
