There are many options for finding images both within the library and on the web. Check out the recommended library databases and links below.


Images from these library databases may be used for school projects, instructional materials, or other internal educational uses only according to the databases' licence terms. 


Be sure to check the copyright information or terms of use on the image(s) and source website you want to use from. Many images from these websites are copyright protected. If your use falls under fair dealing of the Canadian copyright law, you do not need to provide permission to use an image. However, most other uses require permission. Citation should always be provided in all cases.
