Finding and Using Images

 

Hello! I'm Susan Whitmer, Research and Instruction Librarian, and I'm here for all your research needs. This Image Sources guide will help you find and use images for personal and educational purposes. It's not a comprehensive list of image sources, but it is an introduction to websites that might be useful.

Please note: If you're not sure whether you can legally use an image, ask permission from the copyright holder and/or consult a a copy right attorney.

Images on the Web

The web contains a wealth of resources that include digitized art image. As always, evaluate web sources for currency, responsibility, authority, and point-of-view.
