CITING IMAGES

NSCC Guidelines

  • Crediting your sources is a fundamental component of Academic Integrity.
  • When your assignments include images that you have copied you must cite the source.
  • Support for creating APA references and citations is available from Campus Librarians.
  • Web-based support can be found on the NSCC APA web-based guide

Credits vs References

  • A credit line under a visual is the equivalent of an in-text citation. It provides acknowledgment to the creator and the source of the copied image in your text.
  • The reference list is the complete list of all the sources you have used and cited in the creation of your document.
  • The full bibliographic reference to the image should be included in your reference list.
  • This is the same treatment you give to ideas and content you have used to write your document.

Creating Brochures for Assignments?

  • Your credit for images does not have to impact your design.
  • Use a small type size and place the references in their own separate section on the brochure.
  • A well created reference is easy for the reader (your instructor) to link to the images you have used.
  • If you purchased visual content under a license, or are using photographs you took yourself, you don't need to include attribution unless this is a requirement for your assignment.

Creative Commons ~ CC

  • Using a image with a Creative Commons license?
  • Include the CC license type in the credit and reference.
  • For more information on Creative Commons go to the Creative Commons section of the Open Educational Resources guide.
