Bentley Image Bank, Bentley Historical Library

Collection Information

The Bentley Image Bank includes more than 25,000 digital images scanned from the Library’s diverse collections. While not a complete repository for every image we have (getting all of them digitized is a massive and ongoing effort!), it showcases a digitized sampling of the materials available within our holdings.

If you need assistance locating an image, please email Bentley.ref@umich.edu and a Bentley archivist will be happy to help you.

The Bentley Library provides access to digital collections for education, research, and other purposes where materials are in the public domain, the Regents of the University of Michigan hold rights, the Bentley Library has permission to make materials accessible, or where there are no known restrictions on use. Copyright status of some images is unclear and may require further investigation by the user. [More information]
