The use of digital images and videos need to comply with database licence conditions and copyright law whether the sources are VU subscribed databases or freely available online.
As an educational institution, we have a Statutory Licence which allows teaching staff members to copy and communicate a limited amount of material for certain educational purposes. However this does not mean that anything and everything can be copied or put online for educational purposes.
The VU Library also purchases databases for the use of staff and students. These databases are provided with certain terms and conditions of use which usually means access to the content is provided via a Permalink.
From VU Library homepage choose the A-Z Databases tab.
This will take you to the Databases homepage.

Read through the information relating to each of the potential databases and choose a database to conduct your search.
