This guide is to assist you in better understanding the various license agreements available when accessing images on the internet. Here you will find information on licencing, how to cite images for your papers and presentations, as well as an ever-growing list of image collections that have been reviewed by our Copyright Officer.
Don’t forget to check out the related guides for similar topics and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Thanks, and enjoy!
Disclaimer: We have done our best to label these collections appropriately but because Flickr, Google, and other search engines rely on web crawlers and user-generated content, there are sometimes errors in the labeling of usage rights. It is your responsibility to do further research if you encounter an object you think maybe copyrighted (for example, if it has a watermark or says all rights reserved). All RRC Polytech Staff, Faculty and Students are required to comply with RRC Polytech Copyright Policy.
Open Images: Images that are under an open license such as Creative Commons or that have fallen into the Public Domain that others can use their creative works in support of education.
