A new strategic alliance was recently announced between Artstor and ITHAKA. This new partnership will benefit thousands of colleges, universities, schools, museums, and other educational institutions. This interesting information came to us from Library Technology in their article, “Alliance will enhance access to multimedia digital resources to support education and research.”

Artstor, JSTOR and ITHAKA were all created as mission-driven nonprofit organizations with initial support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Now together, they will be better able to collaborate in developing new tools and in taking advantage of core capabilities.

JSTOR was established in 1997 and merged with Ithaka in 2009, after which the combined entity was renamed “ITHAKA”. JSTOR is a cloud-based library where scholars, students and the public can access thousands of journals, books, images and other primary source content, as well as tools that promote research, teaching and sharing.
