Finding + Using Images

Image Captions and Citations

Citing images is just as important as citing sources for written works. In order to generate captions and citations, you'll need to gather information about the image you are using.

  • Creator's name
  • Title of the work
  • Date of the work
  • Date you accessed the image
  • Institution where the image / work is located
  • Name of website or database where you found the image
  • Rights information

Citation Style Manuals

Manuals are continually updated so be sure to check the latest edition for guidance on citing images.
