Access ARTstor — anywhere, anytime

Georgia O'Keeffe, 1887 - 1986; Pedernal - from the Ranch 1 (Pedernal - from Ranch #1); 1956ARTstor authenticates users by their IP (Internet Protocol) addresses, which are the numbers that identify every computer on the internet. Every institution has one or a set of IP addresses that identify the computers physically networked on its campus. We rely on those IP addresses to determine whether or not a user is authorized to access the ARTstor Digital Library. When a user attempts to access ARTstor from off-campus, the IP address will not be recognized.

The following options are available for remote (i.e., off-campus) access to ARTstor:

Access and the Offline Image Viewer (OIV)

Each installation of the OIV must be authenticated the first time the program is opened, as well as every 120 days thereafter. Authentication only affects ARTstor content, and you can continue to use OIV with local content without authentication. But, as soon as you re-authenticate the software, ARTstor content will become available for use once again.

For more information about remote access and the OIV, please see our Online Help.
