The primary resource for digital images is Artstor, a subscription-based digital image library with over 1.3 million images in the areas of art, architecture, the humanities and social sciences, with specialized tools for teaching, research and study.
The Library works with faculty and staff in supplementing this subscription-based resource with the Pratt Institute Libraries Digital Image Collection, a collection of 35,000 (and growing!) locally created and licensed images that are made available within the Artstor platform.
Before you get started, check the Artstor System Requirements.
The Pratt Institute Libraries' Digital Image Collection may be searched seamlessly within the Artstor platform.
If you are looking for images that are not available in Artstor, or need any further assistance, please contact the Visual Resources Center at email@example.com for more information.
