Since the Web is a very visual medium, it is not unusual to use it to find historical pictures. The Images from the History of Medicine (IHM) Website is a searchable database of 60,000 images (photographs, posters, prints, illustrations) in the history of the health sciences. Many of these images are potentially still under copyright. A link is available from the home page to information on copyrights and permissions. Also available is a link to information on ordering reproductions of the images in the database. Remember that any image that you find on the Web is potentially under copyright. Be certain to contact the institution that owns the image before you reproduce it.
