The Hindu launches online library of images

From the Congress committee meeting at Wardha in 1939 to arm-deal scandal of 2001 and Godhra riot taking toll of hundreds of lives to India winning the world title in cricket – The Hindu has opened the door to a vast repertoire of images collected over the decades, launching www.thehinduimages.com.

The online library is a treasure trove of more than 40,000 images drawn from the 125-year-old The Hindu Group’s vast archives and network of photographers spread across the country. The print major has made the pictures available for commercial use as well.

“The website offering is in synergy with our efforts to digitise our history and improve our document repository and retrieval systems. We can now offer Creative Images, News Images, Sports Pictures and Historic Visuals for advertising and marketing needs. Additional features include thematic collections,” reads an official statement from the publisher.

As per the communiqué, interested customers can either browse through the different galleries or special collections before short-listing the pictures for final selection using a wish-list feature before moving them to a shopping cart. The payment can be made through the payment gateway system and images downloaded for the customers’ use.
