Forum has two environments: the Cataloging Tools environment and the Administrative Tools environment. The Cataloging Tools allow you to upload, describe, and publish your content to be made available to end-users. The Administrative Tools allow you to design and build the project(s) for which  you will manage content using the Cataloging Tools. Access to the Artstor Administrative site is dependent on your role as an administrator. For more information about the administrative environments, check out the Administrative Tools article on this site.
