Share your collections where research begins
JSTOR Forum gives you the power to effortlessly share your digital collections on JSTOR, Artstor, or DPLA–platforms that researchers, faculty, and students already know and use–or on your own Omeka sites.
Designed for all roles and levels of experience, Forum helps you manage the complexity and challenges of making content discoverable online. Web-based, with campus/enterprise access and unlimited users, Forum can readily expand across departments and projects. And with no start-up fees, it’s easy to fit into annual budgets.
Why Forum
Unparalleled publishing options
Share local or collaboratively created collections and projects openly on JSTOR’s Open Community Collections, Artstor’s Public Collections, DPLA, or your own Omeka sites. You can also publish your content to an OAI-PMH server to be harvested and reused on multiple platforms. Forum makes your collections accessible to your intended audiences and helps you achieve the impact you seek, whether online usage or directing users to physical archives.
Easy to use
Tailor our customizable metadata schemas to perfectly suit your project types or use standard templates out of the box. Create rich records and control access efficiently with batch-editing tools, work record support, and easy links to controlled vocabularies and rights-statement templates.
Management tools
Customize roles and access levels for users of all skill levels for secure and effective workflows. Reports make progress clear to project managers. And with cloud-based architecture, demands on technical and local staff are minimal — no locally installed software, no servers to manage, and no responsibilities for updates.
Useful analytics
Get the data you need to assess the impact of making your collections available in Artstor and JSTOR, as well as to effectively manage and improve your projects and work.
Proven and trusted
Launched in 2011 as Shared Shelf, JSTOR Forum is a proven solution and continuously enhanced. As a service of not-for-profit ITHAKA, it is backed with extensive experience in content management and discovery–in fact, Forum is used internally in JSTOR and Artstor.
