Image Resources

This Library Research Guide is intended as a starting place for UCLA researchers, pointing to resources and strategies for finding and using image resources.

Print Indexes

Print indexes help locate reproductions of images in books and periodicals for many disciplines.  Here is a brief list of print indexes available in the library.  You can also locate additional indexes by searching pictures -- indexes as a subject term.
