Finding and using online images: Citing

Citing images in APA, MLA, and Chicago/Turabian

Best practices for citing images

To make citing easier, as you conduct your research, we recommend you keep track of:

  • Image creator's name (artist, photographer, etc.)
  • Title of the image
  • Date the image (or work represented by the image) was created
  • Date the image was posted online
  • Date of access (the date you accessed the online image)
  • Institution (gallery, museum) where the image is located/owned (if applicable)
  • Website and/or Database name
