Image Archive for Educational Use

If you are frequently searching for images from art history or archaeological sites, you might want to add California State University’s WorldImages site to your bookmarks.  This site contains more than 80,000 images which you are free to use for non-profit educational purposes, provided that you credit the copyright holders of those images.  The database began as a collection used for teaching a survey art history course, but it has grown to include images appropriate for all grade levels.

The photo above is an example of an image relevant to our ongoing exploration of bee imagery.  Here’s the copyright information provided in WorldImages:
