ImageQuest draws on image libraries from the likes of Getty and the National Portrait Gallery to provide high-quality, trustworthy images for faculty and students.
Every photo and illustration is fully referenced with metadata information, including the source, the rights holder, caption and keywords. Many of the images are not available freely on the web and, thanks to Britannica’s professional editors, you can trust the authenticity and accuracy of the photos and images.
Bring English to life
All images in ImageQuest are rights-cleared for non-commercial, educational use making it perfect for teachers planning lessons, those preparing school websites and newsletters, and students. Teachers can use ImageQuest as the visual springboard for teaching English as a second language (ESL). For example, images of street scenes can stimulate conversations about the names of objects and what is happening, thus contextualising the use of language.
Our editors review all photos and images before they are included in the ImageQuest library. Editors regularly review the library too, ensuring the images remain relevant and appropriate.
