Shared Shelf Initiative (Continued) The Problem: Members have had to develop their own tools and methods for adding content to the Artstor database. Shared Shelf will make it easier for institutions, libraries, and academic departments to build collections using the Artstor system. What will Shared Shelf do? A set of web tools that will enable institutions to build, manage, access and share visual content across their own campuses and with other campuses.
