Artstor’s images for education and research are now discoverable on JSTOR. Users at institutions that subscribe to both services can work with more than 2.5 million photographs, artworks, architectural plans, and other visuals. An additional 760,000 images are now freely accessible to everyone–all rights-cleared for education and research.
