How to copy your Artstor image groups to your JSTOR Workspace
Watch a video demonstration
To get started with copying your Artstor image groups to JSTOR, visit https://www.jstor.org/copygroups and select "Get Started".
You'll be directed to a new page where you can select the image groups you'd like to copy. After selecting the image groups you'd like to copy, select the “Copy selected groups” button.
You'll be redirected to your Workspace in JSTOR, where you'll see a banner displaying the copying progress. Once the image groups have successfully copied, the page will refresh and you'll see your new Workspace folders. You'll also receive a notification by email when the copying is complete.
If a select image group contains material not yet available on JSTOR, you'll see a banner in that folder indicating that some content couldn't be copied. When the missing content is published to JSTOR, it will automatically appear in your Workspace folder.
Managing your Workspace folders
When you copy your Artstor image groups, they'll appear in your Workspace as folders, and any group tags will be listed in the folders' descriptions. These folders are copies, meaning that if you edit them on JSTOR, the change will not reflect in your Artstor image groups or vice versa.
You can also copy the same Artstor image group to JSTOR multiple times. Any additional copies of the same image group will have the date the image group was copied appended to the folder name.
Editing and organizing your copied groups on JSTOR
There are several ways to view and organize your saved items in Workspace. You can create new folders, subfolders within existing folders, add notes to specific items, and customize how the items are sorted.
For more information, see Workspace: Viewing and Organizing your Research.
Exporting, sharing, and presenting your copied groups on JSTOR
- To present images in your Workspace in full-screen view, select “Present” in the main menu in your Workspace. For more information, see: Workspace: Presenting Research.
- To export folders to PowerPoint, PDF, or ZIP file, select "Export". For more information, see: Workspace: Exporting Research Materials.
- To share folders with other members of your institution, select "Share". Note that your JSTOR account must be connected to your institution for this option to appear in the main menu. For more information, see: Workspace: Sharing Folders.
