Artstor is the most extensive image resource for educational and scholarly use.

As of Fall 2019, the Dodd's Art History Image Database is housed in Artstor and is available to UGA users only. Any search in Artstory will show UGA users both Artstor and Dodd image results. When you search in artstor any image marked "Institutional" is a part of the Dodd's collection.

You can access artstor through the link above, but to be able to download images you must create a username and password. Note that the URL in the link above is routed through UGA libraries thus giving you access. If you use the system will not recognize you and you won't be able to use our institutional account.
