Rutgers Art History Collection (Digital Images)

The department collection is the Rutgers Art History Digital Collection of approximately 182,000 images. Presently that collection is available to the entire university community through https://mdid.sas.rutgers.edu. Of special interest to the university community is the Edward B. Wilkins Collection that includes architectural images from a round the world and images of New Jersey and Rutgers buildings from the early 1950s to the mod 1960s.


The university subscribes to ARTstor through the university libraries. Access is through artstor.org. All computers on Rutgers campus can access the images. To download images or to use from an off campus site, one must make an account and log in on a computer on the university network. Then one has access from off campus for 120 days. Logging in from a Rutgers computer starts a new 120 days.
