Welcome to the National Science Foundation (NSF) Image Library. This Library was created to help the science, engineering, and education communities as well as the general public, obtain quality images for use in print and electronic media. The images in the library represent some of the areas of science the Foundation supports. Whenever possible, we have tried to include images of actual NSF-supported research.
Many of the images in the collection do not belong to NSF and some have restrictions regarding their use. To learn more about these restrictions and about NSF guidelines for use of images in the library, you are urged to read the section Conditions.
For general information about the content of the library or how to obtain an image, see How to Use the NSF Image Library. General inquiries, comments, or suggestions can be directed to OLPA-Images@nsf.gov.
We hope you find the library useful. NSF will continue to add to the collection as we obtain new material.
