- Public Collection in Artstor, content will display in Artstor, but is freely accessible to any user without logging in.
- Omeka, a locally-hosted or Omeka-hosted website used in creating online exhibitions
- OAI, an Open Access Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) server that makes your content discoverable on your library’s discovery layer
- JSTOR Community Collection, publish open access collections on JSTOR with your own institutional landing page and individual collection pages.*
*Publishing to JSTOR Community Collection's is only available to institutions that have been whitelisted to publish to JSTOR. If you are interested in participating in this new initiative please email email@example.com.
Edit Publishing Targets
Once a target has been created for an Institutional or Public collection, you can edit the collection name, description, add a collection representative image, and enable clustering support. For any publishing target type, you can also edit the download size, collection right statements, and select or deselect the target as your default target for the project.
To edit an existing target:
- Under the Targets tab, select the publishing target you wish to edit, then select Edit.
- You may make changes to:
- Collection Name* - edit a collection name.
- Collection Description* - This description appears in Artstor above your collection to offer additional context. The character limit is 1,000 characters, and it can be edited at a later time.
- You can include hyperlinks in your Collection Description using the following code in the text of your description:
- <a target="_blank" href="The URL that you want to link to" style="display:inline">The text that you want to hyperlink</a>
- Example: <a target="_blank" href="http://www.artstor.org/jstorforum" style="display:inline">JSTOR Forum</a>
- Collection Image - This 240 by 240 pixel JPG or PNG image displays next to the description. Some examples of the collection image include an institution's logo or an image from the collection that represents the content.
- Maximum Image Download - Set the maximum download size from Artstor. Options include Download not allowed, 400 pixels (JPEG), 1024 pixels (JPEG), 3000 pixels (JPEG), and Maximum download size (JPEG).
- Default Target - Set this target to be a default target to publish to from your project.
- Cluster Items Linked to Works (Institutional or Public Collection in Artstor only) - If using work records, check this box so items linked to works display together as a cluster when the collection is browsed. For more information, consult Link Items to a Work & Publishing Works.
- Collection Rights Statement - This statement will be added to each item published to this target. Consult Collection Rights Statements for more information. Also know you have access to RightsStatement.org and Creative Commons Licenses for providing rights information to items.
- Save the changes. For institutional, public, and personal collections in Artstor, please republish any items that were published prior to making changes to your publishing target.
