Images: Finding Online Images: e-Images

Welcome!

As your librarian, I communicate, consult and collaborate with students and faculty; instruct classes, and provide one-on-one research assistance in person, by phone, e-mail & instant messaging (IM).

In addition, I select books, journals, multimedia, online sources and other scholarly materials for the Art History department.

Need help? Just ask -- I look forward to working with you!

Advice on Using Images


Words to the wise:

  • Use public domain material when possible
  • Get license to use image if needed
  • Look for web creator's statement of permissable use and for suggested credit line

  • Nonprofit or profit use

  • Creative or factual workImage changed to new work

  • Impact on economic value of work
