NW210: Infographic Project (Larsen): Citing Images

Spring 2017

Citing Images

info iconAll of your images should be original or comply with copyright law. This means you should either be using Google Slides' included shapes, creating images/graphics yourself, or you should use images that have Creative Commons licenses or are within the Public Domain.

You do not need to attribute shapes built into Google Slides. However, you do need to give attribution for Creative Commons images or icons that you choose to add and use within your infographic.

For each Creative Commons/Public Domain image, please include a title, the author, and the license.

If you have created images/graphics yourself, we encourage you to select and apply a license to your work and list yourself as the author.

Citing Creative Commons or Public Domain

This box will help you see how to properly attribute an image or icon. Here's how it works:

  1. Look at the image you have found and identify its license.
  2. Click on the tab with a matching license.
  3. Follow the directions and examples listed to attribute the image.

Did you create your own image, graph, timeline, etc?  Here's what you need to do:

  1. Make sure you attribute any text sources that you used to create it.
  2. Select one of these licenses for your work. You'll list your own name as the creator, and you can give it whatever title you'd like.
