Artstor makes available a number of resources for faculty in the Digital Library, including:
Curriculum Guides: groups of images for specialized seminar courses selected by scholars and broken into thematic chapters. Subjects are interdisciplinary, ranging from Philosophy to Latin American Studies. Read more below.
Surveys: image groups centered on periodic and thematic surveys of art history. Each group includes the iconic monuments of the period based on an analysis of the images in the standard art history texts, thereby providing a basic teaching tool. Twenty additional groups are built around the curricula of Social Studies and Humanities, including subjects like Anthropology, The History of Medicine and Natural Science, and Women’s Studies.

Case Studies: an eclectic, interdisciplinary mix of image groups ranging from Art Therapy to Climate Control in the Middle East prepared by scholars in the field. See box at right for more details.
