Art Images

Art images are readily accessible, but it is important to determine whether an image is in the public domain or whether the image is copyrighted.  If the image is copyrighted, permission from the artist or owner is required. Here are a couple free sites.

Citing Images

Images used in your papers or presentations need to be cited.  Here are a variety of examples.
