Copyright Checkpoint is Artstor's new tool (currently in Beta) for evaluating the copyright status of different types of materials such as books, images, audio recordings, and more. You can use this tool with images that you would like to work with to understand if they are in the public domain or under copyright.
We at Artstor know that copyright and image use are of great concern to the librarians, instructors, and students who use the Artstor Digital Library.
This LibGuide outlines the safe ways to use images from the Artstor Digital Library according to our Terms and Conditions of Use, how to identify the sources of images you are working with, and how to find and use images for publications.
Disclaimer: we're librarians and educators, not lawyers, and this LibGuide is not intended to provide legal advice. Please direct your questions about copyright to your institution's librarians or general counsel.
