Institutions like yours have invested in digitizing their collections, but solutions for managing this content tend to be expensive, training-intensive, and siloed from your staff’s regular workflows. JSTOR Forum can help.
Manage your collections with JSTOR Forum, a web-based tool that allows you to catalog, edit metadata, and publish to JSTOR and other sites.
Featuring an array of cataloging and metadata management tools, a flexible and intuitive publishing system, and support for multiple users and media formats, Forum allows you to build, manage, and publish your collections with ease.
Take charge of your collections effectively
Forum enables your staff to access, catalog, and annotate assets in real time from anywhere, which facilitates collaboration and improves the accessibility of your digital collections. With an annual fee that includes enterprise access for unlimited users, Forum can readily expand across departments and projects.
And with cloud-based architecture, demands on technical and local staff are minimal – no locally installed software, no servers to manage, and no responsibilities for updates.
Publish with ease
Make your collections accessible to the audiences you want to reach and achieve the impact you seek. JSTOR Forum gives you the power to share your digital collections on JSTOR — at no extra cost — or on your own Omeka sites.
Forum also provides you with the data you need to assess the impact of making your collections available on JSTOR, as well as reports to effectively manage and improve your projects and work.
Customize to your requirements
Tailor our customizable metadata schemas to suit your project types, or use standard templates out of the box. Cataloging fields are easy to add, edit, and delete to fit collection content and goals.
Need to delegate? No problem. You can customize roles and access levels for users of all skill levels to ensure secure and effective workflows.
