Browsing Books for Images

You can search for books by title, author, subject, or keyword. Images found in books often come with good explanatory text or background information that can help you expand your search or articulate your vision.


Once you find a title connected to your topic, I suggest coming to the library, finding your book on the shelf, thumbing through its pages, and exploring titles on the surrounding shelves. It might sound like an old-school way of finding images, but it can be a very effective way to discover good content serendipitously and quickly.
