There are many image banks available that allow the educational use of
images. And there are many subscription based images databases that your
library may subscribe to. Also many images are posted under creative
commons licences that may be used (it's a case of reading the terms).
Have you discussed this with your library staff? I'm sure there will be
copyright experts there who will be able to advise what can be used and
what can't and for what.
