Finding Images

A guide to searching and locating images.

Finding images in books

There are a couple of different ways to find a book with images via the library catalogue. 

You can do a Keyword search using the term illustrat*  eg. illustrat* war  or illustrat* fashion  This will find books that are illustrated or have a listed illustrator. 

Another useful keyword term is pictorial works eg. Australia pictorial works or planet pictorial works

You can also try a Subject search, using 'in art' eg. women in art or death in art

To confirm that the book you have located on the catalogue has images, simply look at the physical description.  Here are two examples showing that illustrations are included in the book.
