Where to find pictures for your project

All the pictures and articles in the student e-resources (databases and online encyclopedias) will already have a citation that you can insert into your bibliography.  Remember that you need to tell your teacher where you find pictures also.  Google is not a source. Follow the link to the page where the image was first posted.
