Images for Academic Publishing (IAP)

The Images for Academic Publishing (IAP) program makes available publication-quality images for use in scholarly publications free of charge. The IAP program was initiated by The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2007 to help address the challenges of scholarly publishing in the digital age by providing free images for academic publications through an automated Web-based service. This service is intended for individual scholars who are working on a particular book, article, or website that meets criteria established by the museum contributors.

Scholars at institutions that subscribe to Artstor can access these images through the Digital Library. Use the Keyword Search and enter "images for academic publishing." You can then search within your results using additional keywords and phrases. The eligible results will feature the IAP icon beneath the thumbnail image.
