GEOG110: World Geography: Image Searching

Basic Image Searching

When searching for your country or some specific cultural reference within EBSCOhost or CREDO Reference, you can find images.

Be sure to note where these images are coming from so that you can cite them properly.

For example, in CREDO, select “Image Search” and type your search terms.

On EBSCOhost results page, notice the “Related Images” section on the right.

For further image searching on the web for images that are licensed for reuse, try searching via the Creative Commons search tool. This will use search engines like Google, or sites like Flikr, but return results specifically licensed for reuse. Be sure to note attribution for citation. An example citation for an image found on Flikr might look like the following:

joeuser. "Japanese Dancers." Photograph. Flikr. 22 May 2013. Web. 5 Oct. 2014.
