USING EXISTING IMAGES

Existing images of the collections can be viewed through our Collections Online database. These images are usually both highly compressed and auto-adjusted for levels on an undifferentiated basis. Due to this, the resulting quality as seen on screen may not reflect the original photograph.

For personal and teaching use

Images can be taken directly from Collections Online for personal use, private study, academic theses and student essays, and free educational lectures or classes. When using the images, you must include the acknowledgement provided with the image, e.g. © Oxford University Museum of Natural History.

For publication or commercial use
