Images @ University of Washington

  • Images at University of Washington
    Check out University of Washington's guide to images. We're way impressed by the breadth of information about not only finding images, but also evaluating, using and citing sources. Including tools for creating and adapting your own images is a very cool idea!

Image Collections @ Duke University


  • Image Collections at Duke University
    Lee Sorensen at Duke University created a fantastic guide to images. This guide is just so smart; it has a frightening number of image collections links (well, it would be frightening if they weren't so well categorized!), and it branches into additional areas such as copyright and rights clearing, free image collections, and available library services. The images Lee has integrated into the page layout are particularly striking.

Finding Images @ Boston College

  • Finding Images at Boston College
    Adeane Bregman at Boston College created a fantastic Finding Images guide. In her words, "This guide presents scholarly and commercial sources available on line and through the web". Of particular interest is the way she's segmented her subjects; she includes tabs on citing image sources, images from literature, religious imagery, and image features from other databases, to name a few. This guide is just too cool for words!

Finding Digital Images Guide @ UNLV

  • Finding Digital Images at UNLV
    As Jeanne Brown mentioned when she was nominated, this guide might be more aptly described as "Finding Digital Architecture Images". But we're not too hung up on semantics here... this guide rocks! Links to image searches are very clear (and highly rated by her user community!) and her "Las Vegas Architects and Buildings" page has great local appeal. Rock!
