Finding and Using Images

Finding and Using Images

This guide will introduce you to the use of images in your scholarly and educational works. You'll find information on locating images that you may be able to use in your research papers, presentations, and the classroom. Please note that many images are copyrighted or licensed for specific uses. You are responsible for ensuring that any images you use do not violate copyright or other restrictions.

This page does not provide legal advice. However, it will introduce you to helpful resources for assessing copyright status and citing or attributing images.


While librarians are unable to answer legal questions associated with image usage, we're happy to direct you to resources that can help you make a decision or assist you in locating an appropriate image. Email Amie Freeman or call 803-777-8280 for assistance.
