Purpose – To describe new features in ARTstor. Design/methodology/approach – The piece includes descriptions of the new functionality – an XML gateway that will enable federated searches initiated locally via a metasearch engine to include results from the ARTstor Digital Library; and the development of a standard application programming interface (API) that will allow content stored in local repositories or other licensed resources to be searchable and retrievable via the ARTstor software. Findings – ARTstor Digital Library is a repository of hundreds of thousands of digital images and related data; the tools to use those images; and a usage environment that seeks to balance the rights of content providers with the needs and interests of content users. Originality/value – Provides information of value to information management professionals.
