“A unique and educational resource from the world’s leading source of fine art, cultural and historical images.” Bridgeman Education.
The Book Library has just set up a free trial for an online image resource called Bridgeman Education. Bridgeman Education enables the user to access approximately 36,000 images all of which are copyright-cleared for educational use. Users can create slide shows and download images for use in research, assignments, presentations and lectures. The free trial is available for all Courtauld staff and students and is active from Monday 17th October to Friday 11th November 2011. If you are on campus follow this link to start exploring. For off campus access please email firstname.lastname@example.org for username and password. Please let us know what you think of the resource by emailing thoughts and observations to email@example.com. General comments on the use of online images in art historical research are also welcome.
