The following image resources cover a wide range of topics that don't neatly fit into the previous sections of this guide. Here you will find resources that have a multitude of digital images that are within the public domain, and therefore, free of copyright restrictions. The majority of these resources are from United States government sources, but a few are not and these resources are denoted with an external link icon. While these are not strictly government sites, they may provide images that have been uploaded by government agencies.
