This Research guide will help you with your studies in Photography. You will find resources from the library and approved Web sites. Some of the resources included in this guide are databases, books, and Web links.

Databases for Articles & Images

Listed below are databases the MSU community (faculty, staff, and students) can use to complete research on photography.  Remember to use your NetID and NetPassword to login.  You may be able to find some images in full-text in the databases listed for articles by using the advanced search and limiting to photos.




The databases below will provide images to use in your scholarly work.  Some are open access, with an open lock, may be used without logging in with your NetID and password.  The databases listed will provide the information you will need to cite your work (if you use the generated citation, be sure to check for errors, as they are always wrong).
