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

Welcome to Image Resources at the Haas Arts Library!

This guide provides information on locating image resources for educational use at Yale University and beyond. Use the tabs above to navigate through the guide for tips on improving your research. If you need additional assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me

Don't forget: Many of our digital resources can only be accessed by subscription, which means they are limited to current Yale students, faculty and staff. If you are off-campus, you will need to connect using the VPN--see Off-Campus Access--or come to the Arts Library in person, and we'll be happy to help you.
