Art History: Images

Copyright and using images found "in the wild"

There are many fair use scenarios for using images you find online for your class projects and papers, but not every use you can think of is "fair." And limiting to images with Creative Commons licensing only can unduly restrict your options. Questions? Come talk with one of your subject librarians or the Visual Resources Curator.
