Image libraries for teachers and students

Beth Martin, Library Media Coordinator at  DC Everest Middle School IMC has put together a list of sites students can access for school project images.

DK Clip Art:
Explore thousands of images from leading illustrated publisher Dorling Kindersley. Perfect for illustrating homework, school projects and generally being creative, you can browse the clip art by A-Z or by school subjects.  DK holds the copyright but allows users to download, copy and display the Images for your own personal, home and school use.

Thanks to the generosity of contributors, this site provides thousands of free pictures, which you can use and remix, even in commercial applications.  Attribution is not required.

Free Digital is one of the best places on the web to download free photos for use in corporate and personal projects. The images can be used by web designers, graphic designers and editors to illustrate and brighten up websites and printed media such as newspapers and magazines.  Please see the terms of use for more information on acceptable use of these images.
Pics4Learning is a copyright-friendly image library for teachers and students.  The Pics4Learning collection consists of thousands of images that have been donated by students, teachers, and amateur photographers. Unlike many Internet sites, permission has been granted for teachers and students to use all the images donated to the Pics4Learning collection.

Unlike traditional media repositories, Wikimedia Commons is free. Everyone is allowed to copy, use and modify any files here freely as long as the source and the authors are credited according to the author’s requirements.
