This guide describes a number of databases of digital images that Penn State subscribes to or builds. The pictures in these databases are generally larger and supplied with better descriptions than the average digital image found on the web. All may be used for illustrating lectures, presentations, or class papers, but most cannot be reposted openly on the web.
A million images of works of art and other artifacts of visual culture including architecture, intended to support teaching, research and learning in visual culture and related fields. Access is Penn State only.
The ARTstor Digital Library is an image database featuring works of art and other cultural heritage from some of the world's leading museums, photo archives, scholars, and artists in one easily-navigated repository. The library of 2 million images is constantly growing. All images are accompanied by extensive metadata and are rights-cleared for specified educational uses.
