Because it is AICT‘s goal to offer teachers and students absolute freedom to use these image resources in any application that is both educational in intent and non-commercial in nature, users may download image files from the AICT website pages, or may link directly to individual image files on this site. There is no requirement that AICT images so used be password protected, encrypted, or otherwise gated. AICT images may be incorporated into resource sharing projects with affiliated campuses and consortium partner institutions. Authorization is also specifically granted to educational institutions to make derivative copies available to their affiliated personnel, including students.

While identification of derivative copies with the source note “AICT/Allan T. Kohl” would be appreciated, omission of such credit does not invalidate the general permissions given above.

Please respect the integrity of this educational resource by refraining from any use of these images that is not truly educational and non-commercial in nature. All commercial rights pertaining to the utilization, publication, or distribution of these images for profit or revenue generation (including institutional development and promotional activities, as opposed to curricular support) are reserved by the copyright holder.

Europeana Collections

Why?

Every academic author knows the pain of getting the image permissions for their articles, books and other publications. It takes a huge amount of time, money and frustration. However, many institutions will allow free reproduction of images of their collections for academic publications if they fulfil certain criteria, depending on the institution.

This site lists those generous institutions providing open access to images in various ways, and their conditions. Please drop an email if you know of more to add or contact me on Twitter @FourRedShoes.
