Many of our ebooks are licensed for single user access; additional users will be turned away when a book is in use. Unless a book is closed in a specific way, the system will not acknowledge that it has been closed.

Search Syntax Modifications:
- To provide more focused results and remind users of the quoted search function, the type-ahead feature now places the pasted text in quotes for an exact search.
- Default keyword search connection now uses an implied AND.
The search Iran Iraq will be seen by the system as Iran AND Iraq
- Boolean connectors AND, OR, and NOT are now case-insensitive.
Iran and Iraq, Iran Iraq, and Iran AND Iraq will now return the same results set
Because these Boolean connectors are now case insensitive, lowercase “and”, “or”, and “not” have been removed from the “stop” or “non-keyword” list. Previously these words were disregarded by the search engine unless used in a quoted exact phrase search.
Please be advised that ARTstor Digital Library will be performing an upgrade on Tuesday, April 16th between 6:00 AM and 1:00 PM EST. During this time, users will be able to access the Digital Library, but may experience some slowness. This upgrade will eliminate the need for Java in the ARTstor Digital Library and single image downloads will be delivered in Zip files.
Many versions of Windows come equipped with a built in zip program, but if you need to install a program on your PC, ARTstor recommends 7-Zip, available free at 7-zip.org. Mac users will not need to install software to handle zip files as it is already built into OS X.
