Can’t find what you’re looking for?
If the image you are looking for is not on the site, please contact us and we will try to find it for you. Some material has not been made instantly available due to its potentially sensitive nature, so please do not hesitate to let us know if you are looking for content that you cannot find.


Scanning Service
Additionally, once subscribed to our service institutions can apply to have their images digitised by Bridgeman Images technical scanning department with the option of including these images within the Library’s database (subject to a fee and review of quality). This means that if any of the institution’s images were requested for commercial use, the institution would get paid a fee in return.


The Silver Project
Bridgeman Education has been involved in several educational projects including Project SILVER, funded by the Technology and Strategy Board and KTP.
