Britannica ImageQuest — the academic image library that provides access to millions of rights-cleared images from a single trusted source — adds another 50,000+ images to its already massive inventory.



We’ve added another round of new acquisitions to ImageQuest, bringing the site’s total count to 3,343,516 images and 63 collections (but who’s counting?)

This update of 51,007 files includes additions to four existing collections — including seven files added to the Graphic Factory clip art collection by customer request — and one brand new collection.

New Collection: Explore the natural world with Arterra


Belgium-based Arterra Picture Library joins the ImageQuest portfolio with an initial 9,000-plus images. Arterra documents the natural world and our environment through the contributions of renowned specialist photographers.

Arterra’s contributors provide us with stunning content covering geographical and travel locations, fauna and flora, and environmental science. This expansive collection includes scientific names for flora and fauna species as well as descriptive captions for geographic locations.
