A few key points to remember about the images that YMT has published on its online collection:

  • All images in the online collection are free to download

  • York Museums Trust expects to be attributed whenever an online collection image is used
  • To download an image, users are expected to complete an online form


What is available online?

Broadly speaking we have published images of objects that are in the public domain (i.e. out-of-copyright man-made objects) and images of objects not subject to third-party copyright restrictions (i.e. rocks, bronze age tools, wild fowl…).

We have not yet released any images that have (or we suspect have) copyright restrictions – like pictures of modern art, images of magazine covers or photos of chocolate boxes. To use an image of a copyrighted work we would have to seek permission from the person or persons who hold the copyright. We would also have to negotiate terms of use.
