Find Images

This resource is great for finding maps, photos and more!


YOU DO NEED TO INCLUDE A STATEMENT LIKE THIS: “All images are from Britannica Image Quest and are rights-cleared for educational use. ” in your presentation.

Of course, any images found via Google or other image search sites still need to be properly cited.

Tips from the Web

Here are a few websites that could help you chose great images and do great research for your projects!

Finding Reusable Images

Most of the media on the sites below are attached to generous copyright licensing.

Though you may not need to ask permission to use them when publishing on the Web for educational purposes, you should cite or attribute these images to their creators unless otherwise notified! If you see any copyright notices on these pages, read them for further instructions. (Text courtesy of librarian Joyce Valenza)

Here are a few great places to start your image search.

Instructions for Using Flickr

Remember that when searching for images in Flickr, we use the Advanced Flickr Search

1.  Click on "photos only"
2.  Click on "Only search within Creative Commons-licensed content "

*If you don't want to worry about checking the CC image license for each photo, check the second box, "Find content to modify, adapt, or build upon"
3.  Once you find an image, click on the image. Then click on "view all sizes" to download the image AND to look at the CC license for the photo.  You want photos that have the "attribution symbol" (looks like a small i) and noncommercial use (dollar sign with slash through it).


4.  Be sure to name each photo and save in one location on your home directory or flash drive. It helps to get the info about the photos creator too.
