Finding Images in Print

Many of the highest-quality images are found only in print sources - but you don't have to thumb through hundreds of books yourself! Try an index, electronic or print. See Searching the Catalog for Illustrations.

Welcome! The purpose of this guide is to collect, organize, and describe recommended resources for finding and processing images and animations that can be used by TAMU faculty and students for noncommercial educational purposes, such as in classroom lectures and presentations, Web-based courseware, research, and personal scholarship.

Fair Use Guidelines

  • Read and follow specific licensing rules and permissions of each image and/or image collection
  • Restrict access on course web pages using copyrighted images to TAMU-registered students only
  • Proper attribution of source (see Citing Images)
