The ARTstor Digital Library makes available more than 1.4 million images in the arts, architecture, humanities, and sciences from outstanding museums, photo archives, photographers, scholars, and artists.
CCA maintains institutional collections in ARTstor to support the needs of the curriculum. These collections include Teaching Resources, the Contemporary Art Project, the Faculty Field Research Collection and the CCA Arts and Crafts Collection. These collections are built primarily through faculty suggestion, and the images are drawn from faculty photography, CCA’s slide collection, and scanning from CCA’s book collection.
Faculty with instructor privileges may also build their own personal collections in ARTstor, for use in lectures, or as resources for students. These images become viewable by the entire CCA community, further building an image base tailored to the current curriculum.
