Welcome to the Image Research Guide. There are a variety of topics covered in this guide: searching for images, requesting images, using your images, storing your images, and copyright.  You will also find several links to image collections from around the world devoted to many subject areas in addition to art. If you have any questions concerning the discovery or use of images, feel free to contact me.

Image News

This list represents a few highlights from the more extensive group of links to be found on the "Finding Images on the Web" tab and grouped loosely by subject.

Citing Images

The following link takes you to a site with great examples of how to cite images using Chicago Manual of style in your papers.  You can also consult the Chicago Manual in sections 12.31 - 12.51 for directions on how to write captions and credit lines.

Requesting Images

Copy images from books and periodicals can be requested via the form linked below. Turn around time is generally two weeks, but it may be shorter. Images will be fully catalogued and delivered via a group in the ARTstor environment. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
