The library subscribes to or has built a number of image databases that are excellent sources of images you can download and add to your papers and other projects. You need to keep in mind that some of them have licensing restricts that prohibit the re-publication (including open web publishing, such as on a blog or on social networking sites) of images you download. There are also quite a few digital collections that are free and open on the web. Use the links and information on this page to get more information about how best to use ARTstor and other image databases.
Get help with digital images
ARTstor is an important, growing database of images. Most (but not all!) of ARTstor's images are of archival or museum materials.
Important: In order to DOWNLOAD images and/or EXPORT TO POWERPOINT, you'll need to create an ARTstor login while you're on campus, good for 120 days. As a bonus, afterward you'll be able to get in wherever you are.
This tutorial guides users through the process of registering for an ARTstor user account.
