Image Libraries

Image Libraries are the perfect place to look for both inspiration and images that you cannot take for yourself. The range of Image Libraries that can be found is truly impressive, with them covering all subjects and situations. Many Image Libraries comprise of databases of images sorted by subject, but also by colours, size and age, allowing you to browse and search for the exact image you need. Image Libraries can give images that provide a great reference point or demonstration of historical moments and situations, and can be a great starting point for your own project. Many Image Libraries belong to museums and art galleries, functioning to provide reference images of the media and general public. Image Libraries that have been produced by museums and art galleries include the National Gallery Image Library, the National Portrait Gallery image Library and the Natural History Museum Image Library.

Scientific and medical Image Libraries are provided by the Science & Society Picture Library and the Wellcome Trust Medical Photographic Library . Such images are invaluable to many people, for projects, work, personal research and general interest. The media also use these Image Libraries as a source of library pictures for reports. If you are looking for images of wildlife and the great outdoors then the Natural England Image Library, Natural History Museum Image Library and the RSPB Images are the best Image Libraries to search. Images from around the world can be found on the Last Refuge Image Library. Image Libraries are also a great source of archive images, such as the British Library Images Online and the National Archives. Robert Harding World Imagery also features excellent examples of images covering a wide range of subjects.

All Image Libraries charge a fee for the images that they provide. Details of such fees can be found in the descriptions below.
