New Tool to Manage & Share Your Image Collections!

sharedShelffeatureDo you have a collection of images that you wish were digitized, online, and shareable with others at Texas State University or the world?
We want to hear from you!

The library has invested in Artstor Shared Shelf, an image-hosting platform which enables us to centralize and publish media collections for research, teaching, or for the Web. Images added to Shared Shelf will be discoverable by our university community through searching the Artstor Digital Library. Collections can also be made public and found via Google as well as Shared Shelf Commons.

Faculty from all disciplines are increasingly using Shared Shelf to increase the visibility of image collections that have often remained hidden in faculty and department offices. Examples of collections include biodiversity images, historical maps, ethnographic photographs, drawings of historical costumes, images of posters, paintings, and sculpture, and more.

Want to learn more about Shared Shelf? You can watch The Benefits of Shared Shelf for Faculty video, attend a workshop (RSVP), or check out these other resources below:
