Video Conferencing? Give Yourself an “Office”

Share this post:

We have enjoyed finding free to use images from the Library’s collections for those looking for video conferencing background images. I wanted to provide a few more traditional office environments to contrast with the laboratory images featured in an earlier post. You can just click on the images below to go to the record for downloading and follow your conference tool’s instructions.

And don’t forget our earlier posts with images from the Adams Building and flowers and greenery, along with all the others you can find by searching the Library’s home page or perusing our free to use image sets on various themes.

Office Harris & Ewing, 1932/33.
