ImageSearch from the University of Illinois Library (via Pixel)

Pixel, the digital visual resources blog for the University of Illinois library, announces enhanced functions for Easy Search:

EasySearch, from the University of Illinois Library,  is a component of Search Assistant, a resource discovery path for users which allows for searching across multiple electronic resources in a subject area. The Library recently added an image search function by which you can limit search results to images only.  The image search functionality searches and returns results for images from across 25 extensive online resources:  Google Images; Library of Congress Image Search; National Portrait Gallery; Flickr; USA.gov Images; V&A Images; NASA Images; Earth Science World Image Bank; Fish & Wildlife Digital Library; Getty Images; David Rumsey Map Collection; SpringerLink Images; UIUC ContentDM Digital Collections; CARLI Digital Collections; Illinois Harvest; World Digital Library; Europeana; National Park Service; National Archives; Smithsonian Institution; Emilio Segre Visual Archives; AGSL Photo Archive; Animal Science Image Gallery; and VADS.  From the EasySearch screen, select “Advanced Search,” enter your search terms, and click the box to limit the search results to images, then click “Perform Search.”
