GHS 206: Colonialism & Post Colonialism in Africa (Turner): Getting Started



From  your assignment description: "Your creation should credit its sources. You can provide source notes and/or bibliography at the end or embed source credits throughout."

If you use something word-for-word, place it in quotation marks and make it clear which source your content is coming from.

Best Practice Attribution for Creative Commons Images

Title of image/video [linked to original image] by Author [linked to profile page] under License [linked to license deed]

  • For this assignment, make sure that your attribution links back to the original image source! If you cannot hyperlink, include the full url.
  • You're encouraged to cite your image at the time you use it. If you cannot place it in a caption or space near the photo, include it on the same page with explanatory text. For example, if you use an image for your website banner, you can put a box at the bottom of your page that says "Header image" with the proper attribution.
  • If the image is Public Domain, we still advise you to list the title (linked back to its source) and the author. Instead of a license, you can say "used under Public Domain."

Video & Other Media

​What happens if you don't have a piece of information?

  • If there's no author name available, simply do not include that piece of information and begin with the title. If there's only a username and no proper name, use the username.
  • If there's no publication date available, include the date you accessed the item after its location but before its URL.
