Remember the Ladies: Women of Consequence in 19th C. U.S. History: Images and Videos


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 and search strategies below to find images you can freely use in your project. 


Please note: primary sources including images and moving pictures are a reflection of the time and culture in which they were created and may contain language or other content that is considered offensive today.

Image and Video Databases

Remember: you may also use images found in the databases on the Reference Sources page of this guide.

Not sure how to cite images or videos?

Check out the NoodleTools page of this guide.

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