Finding images on the Web

Images may be found in a variety of formats on publicly accessible web sites. Copyright restrictions may apply to these images, and the web master of a given site may need to be consulted when images are used.  Many large and small museums have excellent web sites, which display images from their collections, as well as information about the images, and contacts for more assistance. These sites can be a good starting point when looking for images, and the library also has many lavishly illustrated catalogs available for research as well.
