What's New?

Newly Added Subscriptions

New database: Artstor
The Artstor Digital Library provides access to 2.5+ million images of the world’s cultural heritage, all rights-cleared for many educational uses. And unlike results from Google or other image search engines, Artstor content comes with reliable metadata from the collection catalogers, curators, institutions, and artists themselves. Despite its name, Artstor’s library includes images that could be used in support of all the Smithsonian disciplines, including science, history, culture, and administration, to be used in research and presentations. You can find out more about Artstor’s permitted uses here. Contact your branch librarian or AskaLibrarian@si.edu with any questions about this new database.

New database:  Pivot
Pivot is a ProQuest grants database which is updated daily and provides information about more than $44 billion in funding opportunities from federal, non-federal, foundation, corporate, and other private sponsors across a wide variety of disciplines. In addition to using the search interface to find grants, Pivot users can save searches and set up email alerts for new relevant grant opportunities and deadline alerts for grants they are tracking. To learn more, visit https://pivot.cos.com/about_pivot or watch the Proquest training session for the Smithsonian (Play recording (57 min 43 sec) ).  Contact your branch librarian or AskaLibrarian@si.edu with any questions about this new database.
