Published display of rights
Item Rights Statement
To support item-level rights, we've created community lists for RightsStatement.org rights statements and Creative Commons licenses that you can connect to in your projects. The terms will display with badges in both JSTOR and Artstor and link to the rights statement and/or license you select.
When creating new projects, these community lists are already included in the Visual Resources and Dublin Core project templates. Each term includes a description for the term and a URI if available.
See RightsStatement.org and Creative Commons Licenses for more information on using these lists in your projects.
Collection Rights Statement
If you have a rights statement that should apply to every item in your collection, you can set a collection-level rights statement for collections published to Artstor and/or apply Rights Notes to all items in collections published to JSTOR.
Collection rights statements and/or Rights Notes will display after any item-level Rights statement if one is included. See Adding a collection rights statement for more information.
JSTOR Shared Collections Rights Statement
Every item published to JSTOR will include this Shared Collections Rights Statement:
Artstor Rights Statement
Every item published to Artstor will include this Artstor Rights Statement:

Artstor has not screened or selected this image or cleared any rights to it and is acting as an online service provider pursuant to 17 U.S.C. §512.

Adding a collection rights statement
Publishing to JSTOR
When publishing to JSTOR, rights are defined at the item level. You can supply a default value on the Rights Notes field in your project(s) to automatically populate the field with the rights statement you define when new records are created. If the field is not read-only, you can also overwrite this value by supplying a different statement when creating or editing records, if needed.
Existing records won't be retroactively updated if you add or change a field's default value, but you can use batch editing to apply it to all items in your project.
Publishing to Artstor
When publishing to Artstor, it's possible to add a collection-level rights statement to your publishing target. This statement will be applied to all items in the collection published to this target.
To apply a collection rights statement:
- In your project, select Project Settings.
- Under the Targets tab, select the Artstor target you want to edit and select Edit.
- In the Collection Rights Statement field, copy and paste your rights statement or type it manually. If you have multiple statements to apply to the collection, use a hard return to create line breaks in the text.
- Save your changes.
- Publish or republished your items.
Publishing to Omeka
A rights statement cannot be added to an Omeka API publishing target, but this can be configured in Omeka Admin.
