Does the library have image databases?

Yes, we subscribe to various image databases. To find, click on the “Databases by Subject” link located in the “Databases” box on the library’s homepage…


…scroll down until you see the “Digital Media” heading on the left column, and then click on “Digital Media – 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.
