I have heard recently that JSTOR is retroactively rescanning many of the visual
images in their repository at a deeper resolution than was done originally.
There was an article about it in the October 2003 of the JSTOR news.

We have chosen to continue our art titles in print, and continue to add new art titles in print format (selecting print/online where possible). This is one area where for the time being we accept print/electronic duplication, since of course everyone wants online access to articles. We'll be watching for inprovement in the quality of digital images, and re-think our formats in the future as we see improvement. For now, we have a lot of art students in the library! Dianne
