  Search Tips for NHTSA Image Library  

 


1. To search the NHTSA Image Collection, please first select a Category from the drop-down box then click on 'Get Keywords'.

2. New Searches: Once you begin searching for images, you can start a new search by entering a new keyword under the same category or by switching the category.

3. Search by Image Number: Please note that once you have visited the Image Library and have recorded the image number of an image that you may have found previously, you can input the image number and search by Image Number.

To ensure maximum results with minimum search we suggest:

Narrow search results by using AND or OR

'AND' will only show the images with descriptions that match all of the checked search keywords Example: AND - Use keywords Rear facing and Child Seat Installation - to find pictures of rear facing child seat installation.

'OR' will only show the images with descriptions that match any one of the checked search keywords. Example: OR - Use keywords Rear facing or Child Seat Installation - to find pictures of either rear facing safety seats or child seat installation.

Consider Similar Keywords

If the keywords 'rear-facing' does not yield satisfactory results, try using terms such as Child Seat Installation or even booster followed by selecting the 'Show Images' button.

Keywords under the image.

Clicking on the thumbnail and referring to the keywords under an image detail helps as a thesaurus for other keywords to utilize for your search.
