Finding and Using Free Image Collections on the Web

This guide identifies sources of free images on the web.

Image guides by MSU Librarians

MSU subject librarians have compiled several lists of image resources on specific topics.

These may include licensed resources and image collections with restrictions on re-use. Please check what is allowed for each image collection you use!

Many of our subject-oriented research guides include a page on images. Use the search box in the top right corner of this page to look for a guide tailored to your subject.
