Visual Resources Center: MDID

The Vanderbilt University Visual Resources Center resides in the History of Art department and is your source for finding and properly using high-quality images resources for your papers, presentations, and projects.

Go to MDID


MDID (Madison Digital Image Database) is where the VRC places all images that are added to our image collection to be used by faculty and students for all of their lectures, papers, and projects. The images in this database are tailored to the needs of this university. From MDID you can search and download images, study for exams, or even build presentations that allow you to zoom into each image.  

All faculty, staff, and students are able to access MDID both on campus and at home through the proxy using their VUnet ID.
