ABOUT IMAGES

It's so easy to find images on the internet, but that doesn't mean that you can freely use them without the permission of the creator / owner of the image, be it a photographer, an artist, a museum or other group, organization, or institution. Use the resources we provide below to find images you can freely use in your project.

If you're not sure about the usage rights of an image, please ask us for assistance!

 

 

Find Images in Online Subscription Databases

Images in the following subscription databases may be used and must be cited.

Find Images on the Internet

Google Images 

On your image search results page:

  • Click on Tools.

  • Click on Usage Rights and choose Labeled for noncommercial reuse.

Citing Images in NoodleTools

NOTE: An image is cited on the slide upon which it appears rather than in the bibliography at the end of your project.

To cite an Image, choose the option that best describes where you found it: 

  • Database = a Taft Subscription Database such as Britannica ImageQuest.
  • Website =  a website like Digital Public Library of America or one found through Google Images.
  • Print or In-Hand = a print book or reference source containing a chart, graph, or table.

Next you will choose the type of image you are citing. For instance, a cartoon or comic strip, map or chart, photo or illustration, or work of visual art.

  • To download an image, right click on the image and choose "Save image as". (On a MacBook, hold down Ctrl and click = right click) 
  • To get the permanent URL of the image for your citation, right click on the image and choose "Copy image address".
