Finding Images at UT

Find Images at UT

Many images are not on the Internet, so don't forget to use the UT Library Catalog search window to find images in books on your topic.  You can also try adding "illus" or "pictorial works" to your topic search terms to narrow the search to illustrated works.

UT Libraries also have scanners to make it easy to digitize and use these images in your presentations. Just remember to write down these image sources, so you can cite them later.

Find Images in Text Databases

Strategies for finding images embedded in text databases can vary. For some try "More" at the navigation bar and then choose "images"; or choose the Advanced Search feature and select "Images." For JSTOR, select the "Advanced Search" feature; then under the "All fields" drop down, choose "caption" to get at images that have captions under them.

ARTstor Retirement

ARTstor's platform, JSTOR, is retiring the ARTstor database in August 2024. All of images from DASe and ARTstor will be migrated to JSTOR. You can find out more information if you click here. If you need to move your images from ARTstor to JSTOR, please visit this LibGuide for more instructions.
