Britannica Image Quest

The library would like to introduce you to the latest member of our database collection, Britannica Image Quest.

Image Quest provides access to two million high-quality, rights-cleared images from over 50 of the best collections in the world. Rights-cleared means that these images can be used for non-commercial, educational use and are ideal for teachers and students. Search this database to find images to include in teacher lesson plans, assignments, poster presentations, creative collages, school websites, newsletters, newspapers, flyers, and bulletins.

Images in the collection are organized by subject matter and are searchable using keywords. For example, search results for "Weimaraner" included 88 pictures. Here are a few:

Click for external access from home or school.

Images can be downloaded, printed, saved in a "Lightbox" or virtual folder, or e-mailed as jpegs. If you have questions about using this new resource call, email, or come into the library and we'd be happy to get you started.
