Many of the library's subscription databases, such as AccessMedicine, ClinicalKey, Pediatric Care Online, and others, have images you can download or print for noncommercial use, provided that all copyright and other proprietary notices are kept intact. See our Using Images tab for further guidelines.
The easiest way to find images in these resources is to do a search, then use the search filters (usually on the side of the screen) to narrow your results to images.
Use of images by individuals for educational purposes is generally considered fair use. If money changes hands or the image is used for publication (of some sort) then image users need to receive approval from image creators or owners before use to avoid copyright law violation.
Carefully read the verbiage at the origin of the image. Often image users rights and responsibilities are clearly defined there, as are the means for asking permision for use of desired images. Look for the terms "copyright" or "usage".
