Image Searching in EBSCO Interfaces

The Image Collection in select EBSCO interfaces provides you with instant access to more than 1 million images relating to people, natural science, places, history, and flags. The Image Quick View Collection provides thumbnails of the images in an article right from the Result List, Citation View, or the Folder.

Focus your image search by using the Image Collection types available:

  • Photos of People
  • Natural Science Photos
  • Photos of Places
  • Historical Photos
  • Maps
  • Flags

You can also focus your search using the Image Quick View Collection types available:

  • Black and White Photographs
  • Color Photographs
  • Diagrams
  • Illustrations
  • Charts
  • Graphs
  • Maps

To search for an image:

  1. On the top toolbar, click More. From the resulting drop-down menu, select Images. The Image Collections Search Screen appears.

  2. Enter your search terms for the image you want in the Find field (for example: mountains).

    Your search term must match exactly a word in the title or caption of an image; the search term mountains does not yield the same results as the search term mountain range. You can use Boolean terms to further specify your search. (For example: mountains and rivers.)

  1. Click Search. A Result List consisting of thumbnail images with brief descriptions appears.
