Images and Copyright

Before using an image found online, make sure you investigate any copyright restrictions or other terms of use that may pertain to the image. To be safe, it is best to start your image search with sources that include images that are in the public domain (free to use), or at least make it very clear how (or if) the individual images can be used. If you have questions about finding, using, or citing images in your project, ask a librarian!
