Referencing images in your work

This library guide shows how to properly cite and reference images that you use in your work to avoid charges of plagiarism and copyright infringement.

Using images to illustrate or make clear the description and discussion in your text is useful, but it is important that you give due recognition to the work of other people that you present with your own. In this PDF guide, ‘IMAGE’ is used to refer to any visual resource such as a diagram, graph, illustration, design, photograph, or video. They may be found in books, journals, reports, web pages, online video, DVDs and other kinds of media. This guide also refers to a ‘CREATOR’. This could be an illustrator, photographer, author or organisation.
