Images: Finding and Using Images for Research and Instruction: Home

A guide to finding images for classroom, Internet, publication, and presentation use, including links to sites with information about legal issues in using images.

Initiatives at BGSU


This guide compiles resources for finding and using images.  It is not intended to be a comprehensive list of all sources for finding images, but rather a sample of BGSU databases and Internet sites.

When you use an image you are responsible for learning the exact restrictions and permissions of that specific image. The Copyright and Citing Images page compiles some useful sites that explain various issues about copyright and images. 

The information in this guide is not meant to constitute legal advice.  The librarians who compiled this guide are not lawyers and can not answer questions about what is legal or illegal.  If you have questions about what is legal, you should consult an attorney. 

Non-BGSU Guides to Finding and Using Images

These guides are not necessarily limited to public domain, unrestricted use images, but include useful information and further links.
