Subject: Art Citizenship English Geography History Languages Religion Science

High-resolution images from a range of national cultural institutions, featuring the British Library and Royal Collection Trust.

ImageBank is an expanding collection of high-resolution images from TRUSTnet partners.

The image collections have been checked for appropriateness for use in an educational context and where relevant, mapped to the revised National Curriculum. To access these mapped images, please use the Curriculum Central resource-discovery service and select the relevant programme of study to see if there are any for your subject and Key Stage.

Please note: Adherence to the licensing terms of use by teachers and learners is essential. This will ensure that content providers continue to partner with TRUSTnet and offer unique resources for teacher and learners connected to the National Education Network.

What is the difference between the LGfL Gallery and the ImageBank?

The LGfL Gallery is a collection of images uploaded by the National Education Network (NEN) educational community. Users understand that once uploaded, images are available with open-access on the internet.

ImageBank is made up of high-resolution images from various cultural institutions which stipulate that certain licence conditions must be complied with.

Both the Gallery and ImageBank have been vetted for content; this means that users can rest assured that learners will not find any inappropriate images when browsing the collections.

How can I search effectively for specific curriculum-linked resources?

The keyword search facility is the main way of finding specific images. When you type in a keyword, relevant categories will appear if there is material in the ImageBank. If there are no search returns, this means that there are no images for your search.

Users are encouraged to use the Curriculum Central resource-discovery service to find images linked to specific programmes of study (www.cc.trustnet.pro).

Will the ImageBank increase in size over time?

Yes, part of the reason for creating the ImageBank is to offer a mechanism for cultural institutions to allow open-access, high-resolutions images targeted to the education community.

Can I use the images for anything?

No, you must keep to the licence terms as stipulated on the licence tab.

Access to Learning Resources both in and away from school site is freely available with a TRUSTnet Core Service subscription.
