English 101: Wilder 2017: Shakespeare: Find Images

A guide to basic information resources in Shakespeare for English 101.

Using Google Images Ethically

In order to avoid violating copyright laws, you need to be careful when you choose your images to share. 

Once you've searched Google Images, click on the Tools button (circled here in purple). 

Click on Usage Rights.

Then, if you're using an image for educational use, you can choose "Labeled for noncommercial reuse."

If you were going to share something more publicly, you would select "Labeled for reuse." 

Click on an image to see more detail, and then click on "Visit page." Check and make sure the site where the image is located is legitimate, and that the image has been licensed correctly. 

Cite Your Images

Any time you use an image that's not your own, you should cite your source.


Scroll down to "An Image (Including a Painting, Sculpture, or Photograph)" for citations of images you find online.

Finding an Image's Source

Did you know that you can find where an image came from? Go to and click on the camera icon to the right of the search box. You can enter a URL or upload a file to find the image's source.

Alternatively, if you're using Chrome as your browser, just right-click (PC) or Ctrl-Click (Mac) to go to "Search Google for Image."
