CCC Providing Academic Institutions High Quality Images For Enhancing Course Materials

DANVERS, Mass., July 20, 2010—Copyright Clearance Center (CCC), a not-for-profit organization that is the world's leading provider of copyright licensing solutions, has launched ReadyImages for Academic Institutions, a cost-effective subscription service for faculty, researchers and staff at academic institutions to search, download, and lawfully use high-quality, professional images for teaching and research purposes.

An online collection of over 5 million stock images, ReadyImages for Academic Institutions, a complement to CCC's Annual Copyright License for Academic Institutions, lets users find images by a simple keyword search. These premium images can be used to:

  • Enhance presentations for use in the classroom, at meetings or at conferences
  • Supplement online courses, distance education and e-learning
  • Enrich print and electronic coursepacks
  • Improve print and electronic classroom handouts
  • Add to on-campus collateral and posters

ReadyImages allows faculty and staff to post materials containing images to the institution's intranet, course management or e-reserve system, in promotional brochures, Internet postings and other uses outside the institution, or to share them with other staff or students through email. It also covers access and use of those materials on mobile devices.

"With multimedia becoming a significant aspect of classroom and online learning, CCC is enabling faculty, librarians, course developers and others to use millions of quality, licensed images in their courses without the rights clearance headaches associated with content found on the web," said Tracey Armstrong, CEO, Copyright Clearance Center.

Available to institutions of all types and sizes, ReadyImages for Academic institutions is available now and can be purchased for use across the entire institution or for use within a college, school or program within a university.
