Finding Images Online

Welcome back to another academic year at the University of Colorado Boulder! One of the summer projects the Visual Resources Center has been working on is reorganizing and updating our Find Images guide.

As for University of Colorado image resources, you will find information about and links to the VRC's departmental image collection (access restricted to the CU community) and the CU Digital Library. Our new Find Images Elsewhere on the Web section is where we have really focused on updating content to help you locate images. We've got a link there to our page on Image Finding Guides, which contain useful image finding aids that we have gathered from elsewhere. You'll also find links to our pages on General Digital Collections, Libraries, and Related Content (image resources representing broad content, with works from around the world and across historical periods), and Selected Online Museum Collections (museums that have been selected for the quality and scope of their online collections).

Perhaps the biggest change to our Find Images content is the collection of selected image resources organized chronologically, geographically, or by type:
We imagine this site as a perpetual work in progress, which we will continue updating as we encounter new resources that we think will be useful to you. We hope you find this new resource helpful, and as always, we welcome your feedback and suggestions.
