It is important for students to learn how to give credit for the information they find during research. They need to know that they cannot use information and images (pictures) from the internet without citing their sources. This page lists information for students and teachers regarding copyright and citing sources.

For Kids:

Works Cited list citation for images (pictures):
When citing images found online, your MLA citation format will depend on whether the image represents a work originally held in a museum or collection, or whether the image only exists on the web.

Structure for a work of art or photograph that exists in a museum or collection:
Creator's last name, first name. Title of Image or Description of image. Year of creation. Gallery or museum where the image is physically located. Title of the Website or Database. Medium of publication ("Web"). Date of access (Day Month (abbreviated) Year).

Examples:
Bonsu, Osei. Female figure (akua ba). [c.1960]. National Museum of African Art. African Mosaic/Womanhood. Web. 9 Apr. 2011.
Rousseau, Henri. The Dream. 1910. The Museum of Modern Art. ARTstor. Web. 29 Mar. 2011.


Structure for a work or photograph that exists only on the web:
Creator's last name, first name. Title of Image or Description of image. Date of creation. Title of the Website where the image is located. Publisher or sponsor of the site (if available). Medium of publication ("Web"). Date of access (Day Month (abbreviated) Year).
