From historical photographs to diagrams of chemical processes to reproductions of famous artworks, images can add not only color but also substance to any paper or presentation.
This guide presents several ways for locating digital images, while emphasizing the importance of always citing the website or online article from which you retrieve images. It is not a comprehensive list of image resources, but instead an introduction to databases and websites that might be useful.
Some things to watch out for:
- Are there other terms that describe your subject?
- Are there more concrete symbols that represent abstract concepts (e.g. ""heart" or "kiss" instead of "love")?
- If you aren't turning up many results, try more general terms.
