What's the Big Deal?

If you choose not to create your own images, you should look for images that artists and photographers WANT to share--freely, without their permission. When using images from the sites below, double-check to make sure that the owners of the images are willing to share them freely--some may have minor restrictions. Note: you still need to cite where you find these images!!

Use the Image Quest Database

Use the databases to find images that come with pre-made citations, or even better use Britannica Image Quest!
