What's new in the library?
ICE Image Library
This growing image database features drawings, engravings and photography from over five centuries and illustrates the ingenuity of engineering and its great value to society.
Whether you’re interested in the Renaissance, early steam engines or society and culture, there’s something of interest to everyone. The ICE Image Library currently holds 200 images but will have hundreds more available during 2013. We also provide a ‘search and scan’ service for anyone wanting to access more images from our archives.
Find your favourite image in the ICE Image Library and let us know by tweeting @ICELibrary, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
