Science: The Royal Society Introduces Online Picture Library (Free)
From an Introductory Blog Post:
We are excited to announce the launch of our brand new online picture library containing digital images of paintings, photographs, drawings and prints held in our collections. Browse our special themed galleries or dive straight into the advanced search and explore by subject, date and more!
Pictures have been catalogued to include detailed descriptions and provenance information; they have also, in many cases, been digitised for the first time.
The website is freely available for all to view and we hope it will prove a valuable tool for academic research. The resource also offers an image licensing service enabling users to purchase rights to reproduce the images in books, journals and many other mediums. Proceeds from image reproduction fees will be put towards conserving and developing our collections.
