Images: e-Images


As your librarian, I communicate, consult and collaborate with students and faculty; instruct classes, and provide one-on-one research assistance in person, by phone, e-mail & instant messaging (IM).

In addition, I select books, journals, multimedia, online sources and other scholarly materials for the Art History department.

Need help? Just ask -- I look forward to working with you!

Advice on Using Images

Words to the wise:

  • Use public domain material when possible
  • Get license to use image if needed
