Finding and Using Images: Home

This guide is intended to help you search for images to use in your projects and research. It is not a comprehensive list of image resources but rather an introduction to the process of locating appropriate images.


When searching for images to use in class projects, you should consider the following:

  • How do I find images?
    • The "Finding Images" tab will list search engines and websites
  • How do I know I can use the image legally?
    • The "Copyright of Images" tab will explain how public domain, copyright, and fair dealing impacts your use of images
  • How do I give credit (cite) the image in my work?
    • The "Citing Images" tab will show you how to cite your image using APA and IEEE citation styles.
