Finding and Using Images

From Simon Fraser University, this guide shares information on how to find and use images, including citation and attribution. 

Image Databases @ UI

These image databases are proprietary resources made available through subscriptions by the UI Library. Users off-campus will be asked to authenticate using their barcode number and last name. ARTstor users should create a separate account within ARTstor while on-campus. Questions about access or about creating accounts may be directed to Kristin Henrich using the information at right.
