A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words

Need an image? You can research more than words with the Fairfax County Public Library’s databases. Here are a few to try:

Access Science offers thousands of articles and illustrations in the fields of science and technology. News headlines, video clips, biographies and more are available.

eLibrary contains interview transcripts, speeches and other primary source materials. It features a "go to the best part" button to help you browse quickly through your search results.

EBSCOHOST MasterFILE Premier covers diverse topics including general information, business issues, health and multicultural materials. It includes an image collection with photos of people, natural science photos, photos of places, historical photos, maps and flags

The Fairfax County Public Library has a wealth of local, historical photographs available in its catalog. Once in the catalog, select "Historical Collection" in the banner.

All you need to browse the databases for images or other info is a library card. Don’t have one? You can apply online.

Do you have another good source for images? Let us know.
