Using visual resources

Need good-quality art and design images for your research paper with accurate information, images for your presentation or graphic design project?

In the Visual Resource Center (VRC) you can have assistance finding images, learn how to use them appropriately, learn how to format images for presentations, properly cite information, determine if that image you just downloaded from Google is accurate.

Our digital images are cataloged in VCat using standards and guidelines recommended by the Visual Resources Association, such as VRA Core 4.0 and Cultural Cataloging Objects (CCO), plus vocabularies and authorities from the Getty Research Institute and Library of Congress.
