Finding + Using Images

Camera line artUse this guide to explore Penn Libraries' licensed and institutional image collections as well as image collections on the open web. Learn how to incorporate images into your research and scholarship.



The Fisher Fine Arts Library provides Penn faculty with digital images for teaching and research. To find out more, please contact us at or (215) 898-7086.

Depending on the request, we may refer you to SCETI, the Schoenberg Center for Electronic Text & Image.

Please note that Penn Libraries generally does not own rights to material in its collections and, therefore, cannot grant or deny permission to publish or otherwise distribute the material.

All members of Penn's community can access Artstor, a database of over 2.5 million images including our institutional collections.
