Shared Shelf is a media management tool developed by Artstor. It lets UVA catalog, edit, store, and share image collections within the institution.
Individuals and departments can create their own Shared Shelf collections for internal or public use. These collections are not limited to art. For example, a biology researcher might create a Shared Shelf collection in order to catalog extensive images of a field site. If you were tracking photographs of a forest over time, for example, you might want to note the weather when the picture was taken, the date, and the geographic coordinates of the site.
This guide only provides information on Shared Shelf relevant to UVA users. For more specific guides to using and managing your projects, visit http://www.artstor.org/sharedshelf and see the external Shared Shelf Help Wiki.
