Searching, viewing and downloading images
You can access various image catalogues on the platform E-Pics. They contain heterogeneous image material and are therefore structured individually. As the image rights also differ, the catalogue owner must be contacted in any event of reusing images – unless the licensing type is mentioned expressly in the image information. Further information is available in the corresponding catalogues under the “About us” menu.
Searching and Finding
Images and image groups can be located via categories and searches. Filters enable you to narrow down the search results. For a phrase search, please place the search terms in inverted commas.
Zoom and 3D view
E-Pics contains a zoom and 3D viewer that enables the images to be viewed in detail (e.g. Bildarchiv Online) and objects to be displayed in rotation (e.g. Earth Science Collections).
Managing and presenting images
E-Pics is available free of charge to ETH Zurich’s units to manage their image data. As an E-Pics customer, you can make your images available to the public or ETH Zurich internally on www.e-pics.ethz.ch. Moreover, it is possible to manage the images in a non-public catalogue.

Guidance and courses
All images in E-Pics can be managed via a direct link. For a clear, long-term citation, the images can be allocated a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) – provided that the corresponding metadata is available and the images are not removed from E-Pics again.
