WebEx Training Sessions for Individual Users

It is with great pleasure that we announce the availability of regularly scheduled online ARTstor training sessions. Through our WebEx site (, all ARTstor users can  register and attend one or all of our three training modules. It will no longer be necessary for these sessions to be planned at an institutional level.

We believe that this approach will greatly enhance the convenience of obtaining ARTstor training. Attendees can log into the WebEx site from any location where they can be connected to the Internet and on the phone at the same time – their office, dorm room, home. We hope you will help us spread the word!

Instructions for Attending a Session

– Go to the ARTstor WebEx website at
– Under the “Attend a Session” section in the left panel, click on
“Live Sessions”.
– Click on “Upcoming” sessions.
– Select any session that is listed as “ARTstor Training”.
– Click on the “Registration” link next to the session to which you
would like to register. (If the link to the right of the session title
says, “Full” then there are no seats left for that session. If the
link says, “Join Now” then the session is about to begin. There should still be time to register if the session is not full. Click on “Join Now” and follow the prompts to register.)
– Click on the “Continue” button under the text, “I do not have an
account: Continue without logging in”.
– Review the session information and if you would like to register for this course, complete the form under “Registration Information”.
– You will receive an email message indicating that your registration
is pending approval.
– When your registration has been approved by the instructor, you will receive an email with a link for entering the session and the session password. The email will also contain conference call information: a number to call and the password for accessing the call.
– On the day of the session, up to 5 minutes before the session is due to begin, follow the link in your email to join the session. If you prefer, you can also go directly to and click on the “Join now” link next to the session title. You will still be required to enter the session password that was emailed to you upon registration.
