If you do not yet have an account and are seeing our public access page, and want to download and save image groups, you will need to either access the Digital Library from on-campus (where you can then register for an account) or log in through your institution’s proxy if one exists. If your institution offers a specific kind of access, you may find them listed in the Log in through your Institution dropdown.
