Working From Edison’s Lab: Background Images for Video Conferencing Tools

Many of us have been spending our workdays conducting business from home via video conferencing tools. Some of these tools allow users to personalize their background with customized images.

The Library’s Carol M Highsmith Archive has a multitude of free-to-use images that will fit any mood or conference situation. So instead of reporting from your kitchen or couch, you could be reporting from Edison’s laboratory or machine shop. Just click on the images below to go to the record for downloading and follow your conference tool’s instructions.
