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. Read more below.
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. Read more below.
AP® Art History: images centering on the monuments included in the established curriculum, with additional images providing thematic and contextual support. The new AP Art History Curriculum is culturally diverse, thus these groups offer a global view of art history and also include a robust number of contemporary works.This material is adaptable for undergraduate Art History surveys since it incorporates most of the seminal monuments included in introductory college art history courses. http://www.artstor.org/content/advanced-placement-art-history
