Citing Images

It is important to cite images and illustrations when using them for presentations or class materials. 

Look for: 

  • Title / description of the image
  • Contributor (Artist, udername, author, photographer, creator of post)
  • Publisher or Sponsor (ie. Who funded the research?)
  • Website title
  • URL 
  • Date the image was published on the web
  • Date you viewed/accessed the image

Citation Styles

There are so many citation styles, how do you decide which one to use? There are two ways. First, ask your professor which style s/he prefers. If your professor has no preference, employ the second method: decide by discipline. 
  • APA: Psychology, education, and the social sciences. 
  • MLA: Humanities, arts, and literature. 
  • AMA: Biological sciences, medical sciences, and health sciences. 
  • Turabian: Multidisciplinary, designed for use by college students. 
  • Chicago: For "real-world" subject matter appearing in non-scholarly publications, e.g., magazines, newspapers, popular books, etc.
