New Resource: Columbia Image Bank

The Columbia Image Bank is now available as a collection within the ARTstor digital image library. Columbia students, faculty, and staff can search the Image Bank as a separate collection, or alongside all ARTstor content.

The Image Bank includes over 65,000 images in a broad range of subjects, cultures, and periods, including photographs, drawings, renderings of architecture and sites, and stills of performance pieces.

To search the Columbia Image Bank, click "Go" to enter the ARTstor digital library. Then click "Columbia University Image Bank" under "Institutional Collections" at the bottom of the page.  For your reference, you may consult the Permitted & Prohibited Uses at ARTstor.

    You can also find that same list by going to this link:

  3. Is it possible to publish these photos with Columbia-based projects, like with the AP collection?
