Honors Intro. to Psychology: Foundational People and Perspectives: Home

 

Welcome to your research guide for your FOUNDATIONAL PEOPLE AND PERSPECTIVES project!

Use the resources below to find information and images for your poster.

 

 

FIND RELIABLE WEBSITES

  • SweetSearch, A Search Engine for Students searches only credible websites approved by research experts. 
    • Note: Disregard advertisements that may appear at the top of your search result list.
  • Google:
    • Improve the reliability of your results by limiting your search to the more reliable domains gov, edu, and ac.uk. The domain gov is used by U.S. federal and state government agencies exclusively, while edu is used only by U.S. colleges and universities. Ac.uk is used by colleges and universities in the United Kingdom.
    • Combine your psychologist's name with the phrase AND site:gov OR site:edu OR site:ac.uk in your Google search box.

  • NOTE regarding edu: colleges and universities may allow their students to use their edu domain. If there is a tilde (~) in the address, it may be a personal student page which is not monitored by the institution.

FIND IMAGES

It's so easy to find pictures on the internet, but you may be required to get permission of the creator or the owner of the image to use it.

 

Use our database Britannica ImageQuest, which contains millions of images rights-cleared for educational use.
 

 

To search Google for images you may freely use without permission of the creator/owner, follow these steps:
  • On your image search results page:
    • Click on Tools.
    • Click on Usage Rights and choose Creative Commons Licenses which allows users to distribute, remix, adapt, and build upon the material in any medium or format. Credit must be given to the creator.
    • Click on Size and choose Large so you get a clear, sharp image for your poster.
  • NOTE: even though you don't need to obtain permission to use the image, you still must cite it!
