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. 

Please note: primary source documents and images are a reflection of the time and culture in which they were created and may contain language or images that are considered offensive today.

We recommend that you start your image search with the subscription database Britannica ImageQuest, which contains millions of images rights-cleared for non-commercial, educational use. 

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 Size and choose Large so you get a clear, sharp image for your slide.
  • Click on Usage Rights and choose Creative Commons Licenses which allows reusers to distribute, remix, adapt, and build upon the material in any medium or format, so long as attribution is given to the creator.

Best Practices for Attribution with examples; from Creative Commons.

IMAGE TIPS

  • 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.

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 a Image, choose the option that best describes where you found it: 

  • Database = a Taft Subscription Database such as Britannica ImageQuest.
  • Website =  a website found through a Google Image search, for instance.
  • Print or In-Hand = a print book or reference source containing images or illustrations.

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.
