Using Factiva to Find News Photos

Factiva, the UofCs primary news database also contains news photos. Newswire photos from Reuters, McClatchy (formerly Knight-Ridder) and a handful of international newswires from Australia, Italy, and Switzerland. There are also photos from Fashion Wire Daily.

Here's how to search and find news photos in Factiva:
  1. From the main Factiva page, click on the Search tab at the upper left.
  2. Click on the Source button (in gray, next to the plus sign, in the center of the screen).
  3. From the Source Category drop-down menu, select Pictures.
  4. Click on the sources you want to search to select them.
  5. Enter your search.
Thanks to my colleague Ken Liss at Boston College for pointing these out.
