The problem with Google images Or, how to use great tools wisely… and avoid plagiarism at the same time
Here was my search
Here is the photo I found s-darfur-crisis-enters-its-5th-year-0 Here is the site from which I retrieved the photo
Sometimes you don’t know what you don’t know… What’s the name of the website? When was the photo taken? Who is the photographer?
A better, although still imperfect source for the photo
Using and to keep your sources straight 1.Search for a photo using Google images 2.Find the photo you like. 3.Save the photo in your local folder. It will be easy to insert in into your presentation. Stay on the web page. 4.Open Noodlebib. Create project and make your first citation. You may need to cite your photo as a photograph retrieved from an online database or as a weblog. We don’t have a perfect solution yet. 5.Annotate the photo. Put the name of the photo in the annotation field. 6.Click through to the website Google found the image on. Copy the photo onto the notecard in Noodlebib. 7.Paste the link from the photo’s web page in the annotation field or put it in the URL field on the citation (even though MLA says you do not need to anymore). This way you will have both items together when you are ready to put your presentation together.
Neither citation is perfect, but each provides enough information for your teacher to locate the photo if she needs.
