Image Research Guide


This guide serves as an introduction to finding and using images, and to image citation and copyright concerns.

Working with images resources, whether digital or in print, has much in common with text-based research, but with some key differences. Use the tabs on the left to find recommended resources and starting points for your image research and questions.

For more information on image research and use in any subject area, contact a subject librarian.

Any questions? Ask us!

Make a research appointment to meet individually (in person or via Zoom/Google conference) with a Research & Instruction librarian. Contact a specific subject librarian directly, or use the form linked above to talk to any of us!

Email us at, or find your subject librarian to email directly.
