Citing Images, Video & Music

Images, video, and music that you use to create your project must be cited like all other resources. If you use content that you did not create, you must provide a citation. Images, video, and music should be cited in all cases, even if the image is very small, or in the public domain. The citation should be accessible in the context of the content's use (within a Powerpoint presentation, on a web page, in a paper, etc.).

Citations should at least include the following information:

  • Title
  • Creator name
  • Repository information (museum, library, or other owning institution)
  • Image source (database, website, book, postcard, vendor, etc.)
  • Date accessed

It is also useful to include date, culture, and rights information, if known.

Citations can be formatted according to the citation style you are using.
