General Image Resources

IMPORTANT: Use of images is subject to U.S. copyright law. If an image is copyrighted, you must ask permission--and often pay--to use it with an accompanying credit line. That's the law! If an image is in the public domain or available under creative commons license and thus freely available to use, often it will say so and provide credit information.

If you are not sure if an image is public domain or creative commons licensed, contact the person or entity responsible for the image and ask permission for one-time educational use with an accompanying credit line. For more on copyright, see U.S. Copyright Office FAQs

Using Google to Find Free Images

My favorite way to find free images on the web is to use:

Google Advanced Search Image.

Use the drop-down at the bottom of the page to narrow to images that are "free to use share or modify."


YouTube Videos

Not all YouTube videos are Creative Commons licensed (free to use and share). To search for videos that are part of Creative Commons, add "creativec ommons" to your topic search.
