Q. When I tried to log in, I got a window that says my 120 day grace period has expired. Why?
A. After your remote access days expire, you will need to valify your ARTstor account by accessing ARTstor through the Hamilton Library's website again. Simply access from ARTstor, or go to OneSearch Manoa and search "artstor". Even after the expiration date, any image groups or settings you have made in ARTstor will not be lost.
