Specific databases of note on that larger image databases list that may be useful, include:
USING SUMMON - TO IDENTIFY IMAGES
Summon searching can also be used to zero in on image content, when applying search result filters relevant to images or video.
When doing a Summon advanced search for a word or phrase(s) of interest, books (both physical and ebooks) with substantial image content can be located if one enters the phrase "pictorial works" as a subject terms search (in addition to other search terminology). This technique also works when using the subject terms search word "photography"
More national and international photojournalism can be seen in the two newspaper databases - PressReader and also ProQuest News & Newspapers (for the latter using an advanced search, select the document type called "image/photography" as a desired "document type" search result filter and then also apply the source type filter called "historical newspapers").
