Cornell's Code of Academic Integrity covers images. It's important always to cite the work of others.
There are many different ways to cite an image. On the left is one image from an image database, cited according to just a few of the standard formats.
It's important to check style guides to be sure you're citing images properly.
Here are some excellent guides that explain the finer subtleties:
- Colgate Visual Resources Library Citing Images guide
- Best Practices for attributing CC-licensed images
- And a comprehensive citation tool: Cite Source (Developed by Trinity College in Hartford, CT).
