Thanks to our focus on educational subjects, UIG has enjoyed a long and successful partnership with Encyclopaedia Britannica, helping them curate and manage the Image Quest online educational image database, a global product that is offered to individual schools, educational authorities, and ministries. The product is licensed under a subscription model and students and teachers access the Image Quest database to use images for in-classroom and homework projects. The images can only be used for educational purposes.
