Image Resources: Image Databases

Yale University's Arts Library Digital Services guide to digital image resources.


The image databases listed here often offer higher resolution photos than what you will find in a standard web search, as well as more information about the objects pictured. Digital versions of objects in the Yale University Art Gallery and Yale Center for British Art collections are great starting points, but you may also be able to view them in person by visiting the galleries or arranging at time to view objects in their reading rooms. Review How to Cite Your Sources and Copyright and Fair Use for best practices on using images in papers, publications, and presentations.
