The library subscribes to two main Image Databases:
ARTstor - gives you access to over a million images for downloading. In addition to these there are collections from former Falmouth University graduates’ Foundation, BA and MA shows.
Please note: when retrieving an image from ARTstor via One Stop Search, you will be prompted to login to the Falmouth Resources Login Page and then close a tab box before re-opening the image window. To download, you have to maximize the window
Bridgeman Educational Art Library
Bridgeman is an excellent source for images, and has a European and British bias. You can search over 300,000 images covering 30,000 artists and designers, from all periods of history to the modern day.

Images and Copyright
Occasionally, you may want to use images in your coursework. The use of photos and diagrams break up the text, making it easier to read and overall is visually appealing.
It is important that you always attribute any images used in your coursework. The golden rule is if it is created by someone other than you, attribute it. This might include images taken from websites, social media, blog posts, presentations or posters.
Attribution means giving credit to someone for creating a particular piece of work. More on citing and referencing images can be found here
