SMU e-resource of the day - Bridgeman Art Library Digital Image database

For those SMU students looking for good quality images to use within essays/assignments etc look no further! The Bridgeman Art Library Digital Image database contains over 350,000 images from museums, galleries, private collections and contemporary artists, all copyright cleared for educational use.

Searching the database is easy, and the images retrieved can be zoomed to see intricate detail, all in superb quality. Additionally, SMU staff and students can access the resource both on and off campus with your current username and password. Just go to the library website www.smu.ac.uk/library, choose 'Online Resources A-Z' from the top menu bar, then click on the 'Databases' link on the left-hand side. This will bring up a list of all of our databases in alphabetical order, and from here you can click on the link to take you into 'Bridgeman'.

So have a look, and let me know how you get on! I'm hoping you will be impressed with the choice and quality of the images on there. And if you need any help using this resource, just ask one of our SMU Librarians.
