  1. Unfortunately these images are very restricted Open Access. You can use them for anything with "restricted" access - a PowerPoint presentation in front of an audience which will not be shared after, in a class project for only that professor's viewing, etc. Though its a nice way to provide some images for 'Fair Use' in an entirely non-digital, private access project, I can't see this replacing Art libre or Creative Commons anytime soon.
