Yes, we subscribe to various image databases. To find these, first click on the "Databases" link located on the library's homepage.

This will take you to a listing of our databases. Click on the drop down menu titled "All database types," and select "Images."

Here are short descriptions of selected image databases:

  • AP Images offers photographs from the Associated Press back to the 19th century.
  • ARTstor, although first established to provide access to high-quality arts and architecture images, has grown to include garden and landscape, maps, charts and graphs, and images of interest to the social sciences and sciences.
  • Britannica Image Quest provides access to a wide variety of rights-cleared images for educational purposes across the disciplines.
