An agreement, commencing January 2014, announces ACCUCOMS’ support of Artstor’s objective to provide high-quality digital images in the fields of arts, architecture, humanities, and sciences for teaching and research use at nonprofit educational institutions worldwide. ACCUCOMS will assist Artstor, a nonprofit organization, with subscription activities and customer services to existing and prospective subscribers in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Mexico; facilitating trial access and ongoing site-wide access for universities and colleges. In addition, ACCUCOMS will attend relevant library events and conferences on Artstor’s behalf.

We are looking forward to helping grow subscriptions and awareness of it over the Latin American region. Our focus will be to promote not only to individual institutions, but also to the large regional Consortia with which we have excellent relationships.”
