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
- Most video or audio embeds include the title and link directly back to the source of the video, so this can stand as proper in-text attribution. However, you should list the full citation within your references. If your embed does not provide this information, you are encouraged to provide an in-text citation to accompany the reference entry.
- APA, MLA, and Chicago each give a format to follow for video and online multimedia:
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.
