If there’s one thing we care more about than our award-winning, trusted, and relevant resources, it’s listening to our customer’s needs and giving educators the tools necessary to make teaching and learning more effective. You wanted a faster and easier way to quickly expand your research… you got it!
Britannica School and Britannica Library subscribers who also subscribe to ImageQuest will be able to explore millions of related images right from the search results page. Now librarians, teachers and students can put any lesson or assignment together easily by searching both resources simultaneously. This new feature is just one of many, as we continuously strive to make Britannica your go-to resource for student success!
So what does this new integration mean for you?
Supports Your Curriculum
With Britannica School and Britannica Library, students have access to age-appropriate information on nearly every subject. Add to that the power of nearly three million safe, rights-cleared images that bring these subjects to life, and you’ll understand why School Library Journal said:
Best Database! If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then Britannica’s ImageQuest is a veritable treasure trove of information.
Prevents Costly Penalties for Copyright Infringement
Avoid costly fines for downloading images from the Internet. All ImageQuest images are rights-cleared for non-commercial use, such as teachers’ lessons, school projects, assignments, websites, and flyers. An annual subscription costs less than the fine for one image!
Multiple Resources In ONE Location
Start with one of three encyclopedias. Move on to current magazines, thousands of up-to-date, curated, articles, images, videos, audio clips, primary sources, maps, research tools, and recommended Web sites. Instantly define words with Merriam-Webster’s pop-up Dictionary and Thesaurus. Content in Britannica Library and Britannica School is updated daily by our 100+-member editorial team with new and revised articles and multimedia—at least 1,200 pieces of content per month—to keep users informed and engaged.
