Image Collections and Databases

Please Note:  There are many collections of images all over the web. Museums, universities, historical societys and other institutions host image collections, as do other websites. Proprietary databases may offer higher-resolution images with better information than Google Images or Flickr. Try searching the web to find image collections (and not just single images).  For example, a search for "Medieval Image Database" brings up several excellent sources for quality images.
