About Scran

Scran is part of the Scran Trust - a registered charity - whose aim is to provide educational access to digital materials representing our material culture and history.

The learning resource service hosts over 300,000 images, movies and sounds from museums, galleries, archives and the media. It can be used generically - as a substitute for clip art - or for particular learning applications.

So, if you need a picture of a tiger, Charlie Chaplin, Sean Connery, a Degas, a Dali, images of war or whaling, standing stones, a pint of beer, an integrated circuit, or line drawings of an acorn or an adrenal gland - to name a few - try Scran first.

In addition, the educational environment supports 3,000 learning Pathfinder Packs for your instant use; and there are tools such as Navigator, Stuff, Create and Albums to let you locate, keep, design and assemble your own learning resources.

A quick poster or worksheet is just a couple of clicks from any image and an instant printed page or mini website are equally easy to produce from a Pathfinder Pack.
