Google Images with Usage Rights

Before you copy/paste an image (photo, graph, cartoon, etc.) from Google, first make sure you have permission to do so!  Look for images with a Creative Commons license by using the Tools button on Google Image Search.

Run your search using subject keywords. From the results page, click on the Tools button.  Then select the Usage Rights drop-down list for the appropriate option.

Another great resource for finding images is the Creative Commons website:

If you use a Creative Commons image, whether it is from Google, Flicker, or another image gallery, you need to give proper attribution (credit to the original source).  See the box below for examples of how to do this.  Or go to the Libguide for "Using Images & Media" for additional information.
