Finding Images using Library Image Databases

The library's image databases are databases that the library subscribes to. They are generally going to have more high quality, high resolution images than images you find through Google or other free image websites. Some of the sites listed on the Image Websites tab DO have larger resolution files.

Image Databases

This is a list of some image databases related mostly to art and design, but if you need more or other types of images, for example medical, historical, multi-cultural, there are many more on the Image Databases page.
