Guide to Citing Images

If you are using images that you did not create, you must cite it.  Format citations according to the citation style you are using ( Chicago Manual of Style, MLA, APA, etc.).   Here are a few basic guidelines:

  • Give attribution to image creators in citations and credit statements to acknowledge authorship
  • Indicate when using a personal photograph
  • Include source information

Include the following information for images acquired through an image database like Artstor:

  • Creator's name;
  • Title of the work, as given;
  • Location of the work (museum, library or owning institution, if known);
  • Date of the work;
  • Database collection, if known;
  • Rights information, if known.
