1 Finding Images Fleet Library @ RISD

2 Questions to consider when image searching What kind and how many images do I need? Do I need a specific image of a single work of art or am I looking for a group or category of images? What are the image resources available to me beyond the internet? Who can I ask for help with image searching? How will the use I have in mind for the image affect the media and format requirements of the image and my search? What is the source of the images descriptive information? How reliable is it? How can I verify its accuracy? Citing source imagery is giving the creator recognition for his/her work. What are the elements and form of an image citation?
