What is Britannica ImageQuest?

Britannica ImageQuest draws on over 60 of world's leading collections in order to provide the best and broadest curriculum-relevant imagery and digital art materials that are both high-quality and trustworthy. As these images are rights-cleared, schools are protected against copyright infringement claims, giving your school legal protection whilst fostering a safe environment for creative expression.

Britannica ImageQuest also provides ready-to-use classroom lessons and projects that show you how to put ImageQuest to immediate classroom use, build engagement, and facilitate critical-skill development.

Each photo or illustration comes with complete metadata, including the source, the copyright holder, caption and keywords. With the inclusion of a built-in citation tool, ImageQuest ensures that students enhance their digital competency and research skills.

Because Britannica has done the work of finding and vetting the best photos – most of which are not freely available on the web – you can trust the source and be certain that you’re using an accurate photo.

Recommended Usage

We recommend Britannica ImageQuest replaces general internet image searches within your school. Through daily use and interaction, students will be better equipped to research independently and become more knowledgable about the subjects they are studying.
