2011 saw big additions to the ARTstor image database. Altogether, over 200,000 new images were added. Many of these images belong to the 29 new collections that were added during the year. These new collections come from a variety of art museums and other institutions, including the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the World Monuments Fund. Additionally, new items designated for free use in scholarly publications via the Images for Academic Publishing program have been added from such institutions as the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
